1 Program Part of Living Canvas of America’s mission is to provide youth with every possible opportunity to increase their perceptions of value and self-worth, by providing training in image and entrepreneurial development.

2 Many skills taken for granted are going untaught at home or elsewhere, due to a variety of reasons. The DLS program endeavors to provide fundamental life skills to individuals, age 7 and above, who reside within Montgomery County. All who desire to acquire one or more of these essential basics are welcomed and encouraged to participate. It is the Program’s goal to equip participants with skills they will, in turn, be able to pass on to the next generation. About the DLS Program.
