Life Learning 2
This program is excellent for those who live on their own or who are thinking about it. Participants learn skills they can apply to everyday living situations. This class is a very “hands on” learning experience. Our focus will include how to organize and clean your apartment, budgeting, grocery shopping, banking and paying bills. The class will visit a participant’s home twice per month to practice their newly learned skills. The course also covers how participants can access resources such as credit counselling, the food bank, counselling services and employment. Join in and learn valuable life skills.
