Understanding finances can be tricky & stressful, even the basics like paying a bill or saving money. Most obviously, understanding how to manage your own personal finance helps set goals and create fundamentals skills in planning and decision-making. In terms of the fundamentals, this is of huge importance. Now here at The SID Center, believe this is an important tool to be good at. An area to where we need to train our brains to get more comfortable in.
School can be very overwhelming; Multiple classes, stacks of homework, early mornings, and even quizzes/tests. To make sure you get to the next grade without putting your grades in jeopardy, we have dedicated mentors willing to sit down and make sure you are comfortable doing school. Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops us in a certain perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life.
Part of life is experiencing ups and downs. We want people who understand us and can be depended upon during tough times. We need people who will listen to us and give us honest feedback. Research has proved that having a support system has many positive benefits, such as higher levels of well-being, better coping skills and a longer and healthier life. Studies have also shown that social support can reduce depression and anxiety. Some people do best with a large support group, while others need a small support system. Giving and receiving support from others is a basic human need. The goal of social support is to decrease stress.

The most important thing before others, is YOU! Without the ability to take care of yourself and your own needs before worrying about everyone else's, you jeopardize the most important person of them all: you. So, remember the importance of being selfish is equivalent to the importance of being selfless in living a human life. Almost everyone labels a selfishness person as bad, greedy, etc. But to care for oneself and make sure you make it in the world, you gotta put yourself first in some cases: Look at it this way, we need to have the confidence to be upright with our needs. With that we can better serve ourselves, then others. If we weren't, we would be very inaccurate in what we want to do, what we need to do, and what are next steps need to be.
What do you wanna be when you grow up? This is a common question we were all asked growing up. Answers like a police officer, firefighter, doctor, and even a millionaire. To be whatever you want to be, it starts to who you surround yourself with daily. Everyone needs that someone to listen to, encourage, talk to, and cry to. Community gives 5 big important things; courage, hope, options, constructive feedback, and joy. Having a solid community of people who you can trust enough to be vulnerable and honest with is a foundational part of life. And The SID Center is the start to all of this.

With over many different types of arts including music and photography, you can show your talent and passion. Students who are involved in Arts, show 36% more interest in their future careers.
Coming soon… We are partnering with local high schools to provide a more comfortable and acceptable environment to worship, praise, and learn to be more like Jesus. Whether how you dress, how you communicate, the music you listen, and how you go throughout your day are not considerations to be accepted, you already are!
