What We Offer

Our Educational-Social Group program sponsors a variety of free, not-for-credit, learning seminars and workshops. Each week, a new topic is presented based on assessment of community and workforce needs or interests. Workshops are led by Education Facilitators and/or guest lecturers.

We believe that genuine connection and belonging to a community are essential to the human experience. At VeryHuman, we sponsor and provide space for variety of different groups to serve our diverse member population.

Our groups provide a fun and alternative space for individuals to meet and make new friends, appreciate one another’s stories, and build a vibrant empowered community. Each group meets for two hours weekly and is led by a facilitator, and invites someone from different areas of expertise to present an educational topic. 

Community social groups are free to attend and RSVP is not necessary, unless stated otherwise. If you have any questions, please contact us.
