What We Do

Skills Enrichment Classes

"(You) won’t regret the time invested in these courses. My instructor and classmates have been very supportive though it all. Sharing our experiences shows us that we aren’t alone, and we give each other tips we may not have gotten from our own coworkers."
--Jeanette Gadison, CNA, The Gardens of Wyoming

Bring Your Skills Everywhere

Graduates of our Skills Enrichment programs often cite gaining a richer perspective on more than how to perform their job duties; it carries over to their everyday lives. Our curriculum encompasses the whole person, and encourages self care and reflection as much as enriching the skills they bring to their jobs. The overall goal is to improve efficiency, quality of care, and the well-being of the caregiver.
