This is a 12-week program and participants will attend the training M-F from 9-5 pm and will receive a weekly attendance and participation stipend. There are 3 focus areas:

  • Family, Health, and Wellness section will address a wide range of training such as violence prevention, parenting leadership, healthy living and so much more.
