RISE Now is specifically designed for adult learning and developed based on the needs, skills, and goals of the learner. The RISE Now program pairs adult learners with a specialized and compassionate instructor to work towards their career, education, or life goals in the following areas:
- Support for adults undertaking courses or training such as adult education, university courses, or pre-employment programs.
- Explicit instruction to support foundational literacy (reading/writing) or math skills.
- Entry or return to the workforce support (resume and cover letter development, interviewing, applications).
- Executive functioning skills support and development.
- Workplace accommodation support and planning.
The RISE Now sessions are scheduled weekly or twice weekly based on learner need and individual program goals, and program fees are offered on a sliding scale based on individual/household income.
