Our community education programming is designed to make a positive impact by incorporating theory on best practices and evidence from program evaluation. We view learning as a participatory process, therefore all of our workshops are highly interactive and experiential.
The following workshops are provided at no cost to the community. These offerings are targeted at adults in the community. Availability of these workshops may depend on your location. Click here to request a community workshop for your group or organization.
