Compass Program Wrap Up and What’s Next!

This year, the Compass program ran its first in-person session! We had 5 participants actively engaged in Compass at Easter Seals House and 7 participants that completed the online session.

We’ve had fabulous guest speakers from RBC, UBC, and Community Living BC (CLBC) give pertinent talks on budgeting, healthy relationships, housing, and so much more. The in-person group also mastered their cooking skills at Easter Seals House! Both Compass groups worked hard for the past 13 weeks and graduated from the program last week.

The Compass program empowers our graduates on their passage to adulthood. Compass participants got to engage in real-world activities that helped to build skills in communication, leadership, and decision-making. Through group activities and independent projects, our awesome graduates gained valuable life skills for success and we are so grateful for their enthusiastic participation!

Easter Seals programs like Compass and the new Compass 2 are made possible with donations from our donors! Did you know that $1500 can cover the cost of a young adult to attend a 3-month Compass program and $5000 can supply the technology tools and adaptations that will help the teens and young adults in the Compass program succeed and live their best lives.

Starting in May, Client Services will launch the second tier for Compass. Compass II will include guest speakers from local colleges to discuss career exploration and how to access learning support in post-secondary programs. DIVERSEcity will also support our programming by facilitating Upskills Training and Computer Basics, where participants will receive support in their resumes, interview skills, and more.
