Men's Personal Growth

Posted in Adult & Seniors Programs

Men growing together!

Men's Personal Growth

Develop trust, support and friendship while gaining new skills and confidence. Outcomes include: a better connection with yourself and others, a better understanding of identity, the ability to find greater freedom within your life, and increased awareness of relationships with family, friends and the community.

This program provides men with an alternative opportunity to relate together, rather than work, sports, clubs etc. The group can help to expand the nature of adult male relationships by structuring a safe, caring, challenging and likely unfamiliar setting that develops trust, support and friendship among participants.

The program runs in the Fall at the SOS Community Services Centres in either Parksville, 245 West Hirst Ave., or in Qualicum Beach, 744 Primrose St.

The cost is $5 per person per session. The rest of the costs are subsidized by SOS.
Pre-register for the program by calling 250-248-2093 ext. 225.
