Recovery Learning Center

Mending Wings Learning Center is an important part of our recovery program. Each participant is assessed for aptitude and ability, and given an individualized learning plan. Staff and volunteers assist with teaching courses, and with tutoring individuals at all levels of learning.

Class Opportunities

At Mending Wings, we conduct a range of classes in recovery topics and self-improvement. We have a library of donated books including reference materials, text books, bibles, spiritual/meditational guides and books about recovery. It’s also a nice place to check the latest headlines from the local newspaper, or to jot a card or letter to family members.

Frequently, adult learners face fear and shame because of their perceived academic shortcomings. At the Mending Wings Adult Learning Center, we choose to celebrate achievements! For example, our program offers basic computer knowledge to those who have never used computers before. We provide on-going training so that all program graduates will have effective skills for the workplace, including the ability to key at least 30 words per minute.

We depend on committed teaching volunteers and invite anyone interested in sharing their gifts of knowledge and time to help as a tutor or as an instructor to contact Leslie Littlefield, Volunteer Coordinator, at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 540.777.7651.
