At Horizons, women have the opportunity to learn about themselves while exploring how life experiences may have created barriers to their personal growth and work options. Participants will discover strengths, interests, and skills through a series of personal development and employment related workshops.

Horizons provides a sequence of approximately 30 workshops covering topics that include self esteem building, communications skills, recognizing the impacts of abuse and trauma, as well as recognizing strengths and aspirations. 

Workshops also focus on creating job search skills, success in the workplace, and keeping your job.

All workshops focus on creating healthy and meaningful relationships and becoming active and successful members in the community and workplace.
