Our North Campus Services are located in Newton and are available for people looking to learn new skills, have new experiences and focus on reaching personal goals. People who are looking to build their skills for employment can join one of our FOCUS groups. Each group consists of approximately 10 people who attend sessions with the same staff each day of the week. Our staff assist people to focus on the 9 essential skills of employability: reading, document use, numeracy, writing, oral communication, working with others, thinking, computer use and continuous learning. We also develop skills in other areas, such as transit use and overall mental health and wellness. With the full involvement of the person being supported, we use assessment tools to track growth and identify any barriers to employment. Then, we collaborate in creating ways to overcome these barriers.
