Life Beyond the Books is a non-profit organization providing experiential life skills learning for middle school students.
“It has been a pleasure to be a part of Life Beyond the Books. The Kids have been very receptive to our presentations and really seem to enjoy getting their hands dirty. If we can spark something in just one kid that inspires them to look at a career in the trades, then we have succeeded.”
— Ronnie’s Handyman Service
“Working with Life Beyond the Books has been a wonderful experience for us. Being able to teach the kids about life skills with actual hands on training is so valuable.  We also enjoy talking to the kids about our business and how skilled trade careers are in high demand and can be very rewarding. Life Beyond the Books is a wonderful program and we are proud to be a part of it.”
– Eric Theis – TreadLogic
“Life Beyond the Books provides a connection to learning outside the walls of the classroom.”
— Chris Gutierrez, Principal, Cross Middle School
