LIFE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
There are five training rooms and a large kitchen area where adults have an opportunity to practice new life skills of their choice. These activities may include daily living tasks, meal preparation, computer skills, budget preparation, developmental table games, and Wii Sports. Trained volunteers schedule their time at the Center to conduct recreational activities, work as partners on skill games, discuss current events, and teach new social skills.
The Life Skills Development program enables individuals to select from multiple work opportunities. Participants can learn on the job at government and commercial facilities under the direction/coaching of Challenge Enterprises Project Managers. This prepares a person for independent competitive employment or supportive employment in their community. Challenge Enterprises offers employee assistance when an individual requests gainful competitive employment as a person goal.
