SPROUTS: Healthy Living and Social Skills Home Based Program

This is our life skills home based program. Like a new sprout that is developing off the main stem, this program was created to establish healthy living and life skills.

Programming focuses on learning, and further developing a variety of life skills such as cooking, budgeting, applying for a job, transportation, locating resources, banking, shopping, laundry, hygiene and appropriate social and community interactions.

All Youth are welcome.

This program takes place bi-weekly for a period of 12 weeks.

All participants take part in the Daniel’s Institute Life Skills Assessment. This tool provides objectives and goals to tailor the Sprouts programming to individual and group needs.
