Fast Change Lube & Oil partnered with Martin County Extension Office on Thursday, November 9 to participate in #Adulting. A series of classes aiming to teach young adults basic life skills that everyone should know.
Car Stuff 101 was the first class in the series. Representatives from Fast Change Lube & Oil instructed students on how to check all the fluids on a vehicle and taught them basic knowledge on how a car battery operates and where it is located.
The free class drew in nearly a dozen students, and was led by Sarah Sumpter, County Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences Education. Sumpter says one of the missions with Cooperative Extension is to make the transition into adult life as smooth as possible for students and young adults.
“Life is rough and adulating is hard especially for our kids these days. Cooperative Extension mission is to live in a society of self-sufficient individuals who know where their food comes from, how to cook it, and how to pay for the things that they need. They’ll be geared for all age groups, but especially college aged young adults.”
Fast Change employee Billy Chapman conducted the demonstration. Chapman says he is honored to teach young adults about preventative car maintenance.
“We really enjoyed the time spent and had a lot of fun teaching, which is an important part of learning because when you are having fun in the classroom you retain the information you have learned. This was a great bunch of students.”
