Supporting people with diverse abilities
Village Community Services helps people with diverse abilities achieve their best personal potential at home, work and in the community. Programs like their Village Experience Learning Center use real-world experience to provide hands-on training in safe, comfortable environments, preparing participants for employment and more independent living through vital life skills and fun, community-focused experiences.
Learning Center clients recently visited the Marysville Community Food Bank where they worked with volunteers and staff members to prepare food boxes, learning organizational skills, following directions and working cooperatively to accomplish a task. They also visited Stanwood Camano Food Bank, where Village Experience Learning Center participants worked alongside program staff and other volunteers to plant community garden beds.
Through these fun, hands-on learning experiences, Village Community Learning Center participants improve their stamina, confidence, communication and task completion skills. These are important, transferable skills essential for success at home and in the workplace, and learning them in real-world environments helps ensure long term success.
