Basic Skills

Basic Skills is an empowering initiative designed to equip the incredible men and women who serve within our homes and communities. It is however more than skills training but also provides a place for connection, community, and belonging.


Hands-On Learning: Over the span of four immersive weeks at The Hub, participants dive into an interactive training experience that goes beyond just acquiring skills. 


Building Bridges, Creating Bonds: With a deliberate focus on keeping classes smaller, we've nurtured an environment that fosters meaningful relationships and a true sense of belonging. 


More Than Numbers: While the demand for Basic Skills has exceeded expectations, our emphasis remains on the remarkable connections and friendships forged through this program. It's about the personal growth and shared experiences that make a lasting impact.


Variety of Skills: Our lineup of classes covers a wide spectrum of practical skills, including Baking, Sewing, Computer Skills, First Aid, Life Skills, and Crafts.


Basic Skills isn't just about learning – it's about growing together, thriving together, and crafting a stronger community. 


How to get involved:

  • Set up and clean up team

  • Present one of the skills training classes

  • Provide tea for training

  • Offer lunch for participants
