Lifelong Learning & Empowerment Trainings
Training's include our award winning Healthy Relationships an 8-week Healthy Relationships Program to participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are addressing an unmet educational need: what makes ANY relationship healthy or unhealthy.
Education about healthy relationships gives participants practical information to help them establish and respect boundaries. This program teaches participants the concepts of respect, choice, and trust as well as details on identifying and reporting abuse. Our curriculum is based on the inherent value and worth we each possess as human beings.
The Healthy Relationship Program is provided free of charge to participants, and we provide all materials and all instruction. Healthy Relationships is an 8-week, hour-long program offered once a week.
