Helping individuals and families develop critical life skills to succeed in the 21st century

"Thank you to La Vie Institute., which really helps professionals especially me, to come out of my shell. It’s a package knowledge deal. I am applying it in my daily routine and I can share it with my kids too.”

“I like learning about the different social and cultural issues because it’s nice to be aware of what’s happening around (us). It affects the way we see or understand things and we become careful about our actions and words.  I also like to get to share my opinions even if everyone has a different one.”


— Diana Balila (Teens TPD student)


“My experience in La Vie Institute is extremely helpful for me in the long run, as I will be able to use the skills I have learned throughout my college and professional years to come. The mentors and staff were very polite and helpful in terms of what I needed to achieve…I would recommend this institute to other learners working on developing their personality.”


— Germaine Jamaji (Young Adults TPD Student)


“ I learned how to handle myself properly and how to improve in the things that I lack. I learned to always be aware of my actions/ gestures because of people’s different opinions .

La Vie is a school run on a sincere passion to help individuals bloom where they are planted and I highly recommend it!"

In my opinion, this is an investment people should consider for themselves.”
