Job Training and Life Skills for People with Disabilities
Learning Options support life-long education with a focus on community integration, life skills and vocational skills training.
The goal of the learning options program at Opportunity Partners is to provide instruction and an opportunity to practice learned skills while clients are working toward their desired outcomes. Clients, service planners and instructors work together to design opportunities that match the interests and the needs of each individual.
Instructional classes cover a wide range of topics to meet a variety of interests. Whether it is cooking, art, living green, academics, community service, physical life or others, each class focuses on real-world application and skill acquisition.
