Social & Spirituality


Having friends and personal connections in one’s life is key to having a happy and successful adult life.  Friends and connections that children make during early and school years – at school, in community activities such as scouting or sports, or in their faith community –  have an impact on their adult life. Those school or neighborhood friends may end up being future employers, neighbors, business owners, and most importantly, friends in adult life!
