Through the Community Education Series our aim is to introduce people to new topics and gain tools to apply their daily lives. Within this series you will find classes that will educate families and individuals on topics focusing on healthy development, well-being & body awareness. These programs promote social bonding and togetherness, connecting people with community resources.
Selected community education programs will be community give-back days where 100% of your donations go towards Wellspring a local non-profit. In addition, programs may be offered with a sliding fee schedule as an added community benefit.
