Empowerment Workshops

We should all try to continue to learn as much as we can as we go through life.  But sometimes basic, everyday tasks can seem daunting.  Our Empowerment Workshops are a series of twelve topics designed to help you learn more about basic life skills- all with a movie related theme.  Topics include budgeting and money management, safety, parenting skills, good housekeeping and time management, smart shopping, basic home maintenance and more.
