Providing life skills one activity at a time

Life’s toolbox is a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit creating gardening and crafting classes with an emphasis on gaining underlying life skills including working cooperatively with others, leisure exploration, hands-on experiences and STEAM based curriculum for educational based programs. 

We customize workshops by designing the length of the program to the interests and abilities of the participants.  We have provided one day event groups for  TASK resource fair, Imanginology, Orange County fair, Centennial Farms and the Buddy Walk to weekly programs at skilled nursing facilities, assistive living facilities, public schools, privates schools, after school programs and private residences for home schooling programs and service oriented clubs and groups.
