Educational Support

"Yahara House is a place where I can communicate and socialize with other colleagues. Yahara House helps me thrive in the community inside and outside the house. Yahara house feels like a second home."

The Clubhouse assists members to reach their vocational and educational goals by helping them take advantage of educational opportunities in the community. When the Clubhouse also provides an in-house education program, it significantly utilizes the teaching and tutoring skills of members.

Many Clubhouse members have had to interrupt their educational plans because of their mental illness. Some have not finished secondary school, while others had to curtail their university studies. The Clubhouse offers educational opportunities for members to complete or start certificate and degree programs at academic institutions and adult education providers. This includes an Education Committee. The Clubhouse also utilizes the talents and skills of members and staff to provide educational opportunities in the Clubhouse, particularly in areas related to literacy.
