HELP, Havre Public Schools, Oakwood Village and numerous organizations and individuals are putting on a full summer of youth, adult and parenting activities
The multi-faceted program is funded in part through a 1-year $99,900 Drug Free Communities grant through HELP (Havre Encourages Long-Range Prevention).
The sponsoring organizations have a number of other projects planned throughout the summer that will be announced as they are finalized.
Systematic Training for Effective Parenting will be held from 2-4 p.m. each Thursday from June 10 through July 29 at Oakwood Village, apartment D-3.
It is true that children do not come with instructions, but you can find help at this class being taught by Alou from Family Partners (HRDC), a HELP flyer says.
S.T.E.P. is designed to give parents the tools to tackle the special challenges of parenting infants, toddlers, and preschoolers (children 0-5). The class is packed with real-life examples, according to Malisani, with child care provided. Space is limited, she said, so parents are asked to register early for the free class.
Call Alou at 265-6743 or Krista at 265-6206.
MSU-Northern students will do career assessments on Mondays and Wednesdays in June. Choose to attend from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Mondays, June 14, 21, and 28, or Wednesdays, June 16, 23, and 30.
The assessments offer the opportunity to think about what career would be right for you. Participants will have the chance to devise a plan of action and receive assistance in interviewing, job search techniques, and resume writing.
Personality, skills and interest inventories;
Personal consultation and planning session;
Area resources to help you achieve your goals.
