The Creativity Collective‘s “Life Skills” Project, also know as Gradeuxity (gratuity, or tips, for graduates), gives graduating seniors a life-skills book with information on applying for college, job hunting, banking, buying a car, traveling, writing a resume, renting an apartment and more.

Over several years, The Creativity Collective members have been pulling together this valuable and extremely necessary wealth of information in order to create our free Website platform and have raised funds to print booklets compiling these essential skills so we can educate the local student populous for no cost to the students. Our hopes for the future to to have a educational package including website, booklets and PowerPoint class sessions so those taking advantage of this program can gain the full benefit of the vast knowledge.

Gradeuxity. “Gratuity for Graduates” fortifies high school students with valuable life skills—available online and in a portable 96-page handbook. The book will be presented, mid-2017/2018 school year, to students in a lively assembly that summarizes the following articles:
