Education

Over 60 programs operate out of the 919 Pandora Avenue essential service centre, from bike maintenance to art and peer counselling.

Due to the COVID pandemic, most education classes are suspended for now.

Camosun Computer Class

Camosun College continues its very popular Computer Basics class at Our Place this year. Computer skills are introduced at the fundamental level to help students gain the knowledge and confidence to perform basic computer operations and essential computer literacy skills such as basic keyboarding, introduction to word processing and electronic communication. The friendly and supportive instructors accommodate all levels of student experience.

“The art class provides me with a safe place. I am able to express myself there, without judgment or worry. I look forward to it every week.” – Robin
