Launch +Skills Program

Launch +Skills offers focused individualized support for up to one year, for individuals 15 and over who are on a path to independence including continued education, employment and/or living away from home in the future.  Features of the program include ongoing enrollment, individualized action plan development, 1:1 coaching sessions, flexibility in scheduling to work around other activities, workshops for participants and parents and café style meet ups.

The Launch +Skills weekly Café style meetups are typically held in the community, and are an opportunity for current and past participants to come together for progress updates and to socialize.  Here is a little insight to a recent meet-up . . .

“July 24th was one of the best café’s to date for the Launch +Skills program with 18 participants coming out for the dinner party.  They were split into two groups, with team leaders to delegate tasks for each person in their group. One group was in charge of food prep and cooking, while the other group was in charge of the entertainment, (ie. music) designing the layout of the dining room table, and setting the table with linens, cutlery, and dishes. They cooked and served a delicious meal of Spaghetti Bolognese with garlic bread and chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  The idea was to get everyone working as a team, and to learn what all is involved in hosting a dinner party.  The group discovered what kind of icebreaker questions you can use to start conversations, and how you can host a party for 18 people for just under $40!!  We are excited to see our young adults socializing more, and for the potential for friendships to grow outside of the program.”
