Life Development Institute (LDI)
What make LDI an ideal program for young adults?
Since 1982, the LDI has helped thousands of older adolescents and young adults from around the world . LDI is a fully accredited, college preparatory high school & postsecondary young adult program located in Glendale, Arizona. We are an independent, non-sectarian program for higher education capable young adults 18 & older, whose students thrive in a learning and living environment providing holistic academic and community engagement.
Our program creates a practical and inclusive bridge between the secondary and higher education/career development aspirations of international students in improving readiness and academic success in college, identifying viable career ladders, building interpersonal and leadership skills.
How does the LDI program empower young adults to achieve personal success?
LDI is committed to international students in all stages of their education, life, cultural, and career experiences by providing a comprehensive education and cultural program equipping international students with a broad range of basic skills, soft skills, and collegiate/technical skills fundamental to improving their graduation, matriculation, employability and overall quality of life.
Students access a substantial resource base of local colleges, universities, training programs, technical schools, and employers. Instead of a "one size fits all" placement approach, student education/training options are only limited by English literacy abilities and the internal desire to succeed.
Concurrently with college or vocational enrolment, LDI embeds developmental content into its courses whose assignments & competencies integrate practical college strategies, promote interpersonal communication skills, career development & enhance social responsibility. All students engage in both academic & experiential learning in the " how to's" of handling common problem solving & decision making demands for adult life success.
