NEVADA (KTNV) — Two women in Maine are launching online crash courses directed at young adults on "adulting."

From cooking, budgeting, to time management the courses are designed to teach millennials a few of the basics.

Rachel Flehinger and Rachel Weinstein are the two behind the idea of Adulting School. They are dedicated to teach "adult" skills to fledgling adults and assist them in becoming successful grown-ups.

"It's going to be entertaining," Flehinger said.

The school offers private social media groups with live events at local bars and restaurants where attendees can learn skills like how to network as a pro or how to fold a fitted sheet.

Flehinger said her partner got the idea for the courses from her work as a psychotherapist. She noticed many of her clients were struggling with the transition to adulthood - including paying bills on time or choosing a career.

The courses have become so popular that the Rachel duo decided to take their teachings digital with online classes.

More information on the school’s offerings can be found here.

Right here at home, Boulder City Library offers classes for young adults. Past classes have including learning how to cook Ramen, simple sewing, making the perfect coffee, making homemade ice cream and more. Click here for more information.
