Come check out our new program Flying Solo: Cookin’ with Care:
What is involved in Flying Solo- Out and About?
Teens will learn some basic skills on how to fly solo when is comes to making a meal. Activities will include time in our classroom learning about each skill and practicing during role plays, as well as putting the skills to use by choosing a meal to make, getting groceries, cookin’ it up and cleaning up after themselves! The following topics will be covered:
We will be meeting at or traveling to Grant’s No Frills via public transit throughout the group. Teens will have access to $50 over the course of the group in order to make grocery purchases. This is included in the cost of the group.
A Behaviour Plan will be created for each participant that will outline their learning goals for the group as well as a progress review to summarize outcomes.
