Life skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable humans to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. The objective of the study was to study the life skills education level among high school students and to study the effects of intervention among selected group of respondents. The life skills rating scale was self-constructed. Expert validity was done to check the validity of the developed tool. A sample of 200 high school children were randomly selected from private and government school. Based on the findings of the research study, 30 for experimental and 30 for control group were selected from government high school and they become the sample for the intervention program. The intervention program was conducted twice in a week, and continued for three weeks. Two sessions were conducted on each day of intervention program.
