If there is an interest or a passion you’d like to pursue, your local neighbourhood house has a range of courses, classes and workshops for you to explore.
Nurture a creative talent, learn a language, develop your skills or join a social group.
We have options for children and teens through to the senior members of our community. Get in contact with your local house and find out what we have on offer.
