Rainbow House will be hosting a weekly life skills class for teens every Tuesday in May and June. Classes will be held at the Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church in Columbia and begin at 6:00 p.m. Each session will cover a range of skills from balancing a checkbook to changing a flat tire. This class is free and open to any young adult ages 16-22. For more information, please contact Claire Slama at (573) 474-6600, ext. 3203.
