Students are taught how to effectively manage their time, the importance of punctuality, and how to maintain composure under stressful work environments. Students also received feedback from guest interviewers as to how to write a formal CV and cover letter, how to dress appropriately for an interview, and helpful interview techniques.

Life Skills students are able to learn specifically about service level industry jobs around Siem Reap. Cooking classes and sewing projects are made available to help them find jobs in restaurants and hotels. Students also present on vocations they are interested in at the end of the class.
Impact of Life Skills Classes
In 2015, there were 27 students that graduated from the Life Skills classes. 2016 now has 30 young adult students, some of whom wished to express gratitude for the program. Reaksmey, a 20 year old English student, advocates that students should take these classes because “It helps us to know about ourselves and future employment.” Buntheon also was grateful for the cooking classes saying, “I think cooking class is good because it brings us to know our former student, good relationship and we can gain cooking skill that we never know before.”
