Description

Adulting 101 – full series $275

Adulting is tough, but we can make it easier through Adulting 101. There’s no need to learn life’s lessons the hard way: Let us teach your teens and young adults the basics of home ownership, car purchasing, and financial planning. Better to figure it out with us than after you spend too much on a junker.

Adulting 101 includes access to the following courses:



Houses 101 – Ryan Voorhees
February 17 and 24, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Your house is likely the biggest purchase you’ll ever make. Let our construction expert help you out. He’ll teach you all about the housing market, financing, and home inspection. Then, once you’ve moved in, you’ll need to maintain your space: We’ll teach home maintenance including weatherizing; staying green; basic electric, plumbing, and HVAC repair and renovation; and when to do it yourself vs. when to hire a professional.

Cars 101 – Bob Huffman
March 3, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Buying a car isn’t all fun and games. It can be expensive and stressful! We’ll walk you through what to look for, how to negotiate price, financing, and insurance. Plus, we’ll teach you basic car maintenance including how to change a tire, how to check and change your oil, and “What does that sound mean?”

Money 101 - Erikson Conkling
March 10, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Feel as financially competent as Bill Gates once you understand the basics of the not-so-basic retirement planning, health insurance, investments, and debt. It might sound intimidating, but we can make it as simple as Monopoly money.


Registration deadline: February 9



ADULT AND YOUTH CLASSES

For the purposes of registration in adult classes, you MUST be 16 years of age at the start of the class unless otherwise indicated. Classes for youth are listed with the specific ages/grade levels in the class description.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

IvyLiving classes follow the Ivy Tech Community College procedure for emergency cancellation of classes. We will do our best to inform all students as soon as possible in case of a rare cancellation.

REGISTER EARLY

IvyLiving classes have a specific “register by” date which will determine whether or not the class will run. If there are not enough registrations by the registration deadline, the course may be cancelled. Additionally, most programs have limited space available so it is in your best interests to register early. After the registration deadline, please call for space availability.

REFUND POLICY

If you need to cancel your registration, please contact us at least 14 days before the first class meeting to receive a credit for future course. No refunds or credits will be issued after this time. In the event that the class is cancelled due to low enrollment, full refunds will be issued in the original form of payment.

SUBSTITUTION POLICY

IvyLiving reserves the right to use substitute instructors and alternate facilities and schedules when necessary.
