Spotlight: 2ND ANNUAL STUDENT WORKSHOP DAYS-ANOTHER SUCCESS! [Sanford Community Adult Education]

SCAE Holds Workshop Days for Students and the Community!

October 2nd and 3rd, 2018, were very different than the usual class days at Sanford Community Adult Education. All daytime and night classes were transformed into workshops about colleges, employment, local social service agencies, self-care, and supporting family and friends with substance abuse disorders. Students, their families and friends, and other community members who attended chose between several options for each time block.

Presenters included representatives from York County Community College, University of Maine Augusta, University of Southern Maine, Sanford Institution for Savings, Goodwill Workforce Solutions, York County Community Action, and Strategies for a Stronger Sanford. Teachers and staff at SCAE also presented workshops on such diverse topics as job hunting tips, transitioning to college from adult education, managing your money, understanding math in the news, communication without technology, self-care-yoga, and a history of Sanford.

Particularly well-attended were two workshops called, “Supporting Family and Friends with Substance Abuse Disorders”, facilitated by Lynn Hatch of Strategies for a Stronger Sanford.

Another highlight was a panel of “Successful Former Adult Ed Students, which included Laura Miller, an R.N. who attended SCAE over 10 years ago; Jessica Rogers, who attended five years ago and is now a trainer for a medical records company; and Nathan Darigan, who graduated in June 2018 and is now attending SMCC in South Portland. These former students shared their stories of struggle and success.

Allen Lampert, Director at Sanford Community Adult Education commented. “This is our second year providing this service to the community. We are proud to be able to offer these workshops to our students and the community at-large, and we are looking forward to doing it again next year.”

Students arrived to coffee, breakfast pastries, and fruit. They were also provided with lunch and snacks throughout the day.  There was ample break time between the sessions for participants to talk further with workshop presenters or each other.  This was the second annual Student Workshop Days, and next year’s event is being planned.
