Young adults (18 to 30+) face intense pressure to achieve and to succeed. Navigating our modern world and its social media demands, video gaming distractions, marijuana legalization, and uncertain environmental (climate) future can be daunting even for the most competent. For those who struggle with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or subtle learning disabilities, launching into an independent life under these conditions can seem nearly impossible.
This weekly group provides peer and professional interaction supported by a drop-in skills laboratory in which members write resumes, practice interviewing or talking with authority figures, prepare on-line applications, or complete homework and various types of research.
This Weekly Workshop is Specifically Designed for Young Adults Seeking to:
- Find and keep meaningful work while reducing financial dependence on parents
- Develop classroom experience and the confidence to start or complete college
