We provide programming and workshops to get you ready to take on the challenges of stress, self-esteem, and parenting while slowly introducing academics to get you started on the right path.

Your Journey Starts Here
For many of our participants, beginning the process of academic upgrading or re-entering the workforce while also raising a family can seem overwhelming. That’s why we’ve created the Taking Charge! of Personal Development and the Family Focus Workshops. The courses and workshops offered in these programs are designed to ensure you have the support, skills, and strategies you need to help you succeed in achieving your goals and discovering who you are.
For more information on what we offer, click the links in the Personal Development and Family Workshops tabs.
“I had been on EIA, it almost felt like a career at the point, it had been twelve years, and I was tired of the same old thing all the time. I was tired of not doing anything with myself. When I first came to Taking Charge! I didn’t feel like I had a future, I was very nervous, and didn’t think I could do it. But I thought to myself, I have to do this because my kids are watching, I have to set an example. If I look at who I am now, I’m a whole different person and I have to thank Taking Charge. I graduated, I went to University, and now I have a job, working full-time, which I love.” – Rebecca, Taking Charge! participant
