We provide meaningful ways to give people of all ages and stages of life the chance to try their hand at what may become a hobby, a cottage business, or a new career with classes that teach not only the ‘hard’ skills associated with the curriculum, but also the ‘soft’ skills needed to be successful in that trade.
