TechRen Anguilla Workshop- COMING SOON!
The TechRen academic work-study community center project was started to provide a positive comfortable energetic atmosphere for learning, physical fitness, and recreation to the residence of Anguilla.
The facility will be located in Statia Valley, minutes from the Valley.
Community centers are not just for seniors, not just for kids, not just for families. They can offer an enormous variety of educational, social and recreational activities, tailored to what the members of the community are interested in. Community potlucks, singles nights, afterschool programs and tutoring, health, wellness and exercise classes, crafts, lectures, dances, music performances...to name just a few examples. When we reach out to our neighbors and make new friends (or renew old ones), our quality of life is increased. The TechRen Foundation is hoping to create a meeting place for all ages with programming aimed at a wide variety of needs and interests.
The community center will expand on our current work study programs listed on our home page by also providing all participants an opportunity to continually enhance their learning and study skills through a series of workshops. These work-shops will include academic power studying, time management, textbook reading, note taking, and test taking.
