The Calgary Drop-In Centre has partnered with the City of Calgary, the Downtown Community Association and a number of local non-profit organizations to create the Engaging Vulnerable People workshop.
In this three hour course, participants learn about the causes of homelessness and the resources available to those going through it. We break down common myths and misconceptions by providing a glimpse of what life on the streets looks like. And we offer practical skills and knowledge that empower people to not only co-exist with homeless men and women in their community, but interact with them meaningfully, using compassion, empathy, and crisis intervention techniques when necessary.
3 hour sessions (tour included) are available
1.5 hour sessions are also offered
Groups have the choice of picking dates, time, and location that suits them.
