World of Possibilities headline

UK Extension's Universe of Possibilities teaches a set of core skills that have application in nearly every area of life. Mastering these skills enables you to be calmer, happier, more energetic, and more effective. You become a better citizen, parent, spouse, partner, friend, co-worker—better at just about anything. The program is flexible, easy-to-use, and enjoyable; it’s ideal for both individuals and groups; it enhances creativity and productivity; and it fosters healthy relationships while opening up new worlds of possibility, both individually and collectively.
