ADULT RESOURCES

WEDNESDAY: 9AM - 11AM

One of the biggest keys to personal growth is access to the right resources and one of the best resources is education. Life Classes meet every week to provide this resource. Along with a certified teacher, small, personal classes meet together to discuss courses that make a huge impact on how we live. Curriculum includes Financial Management, Personal Integrity, Parenting, Relationships, & More.

LIFE CLASSES


The computer lab is open during our regular hours.

We know that it is difficult to access many resources, job applications, etc. without access to a computer. That's why we keep our lab open whenever we don't have a student program in the building for those who need it.
