The Refresh Circle course consists of ESL and digital practice, and it caters to immigrant seniors, specifically to those 55 years and older. In this course, learners will have the opportunity to socialize, practice technological skills, make friends, read storybooks, do crafts and engage in physical activities. We offer support and create different opportunities to share their knowledge and skills through volunteer work in social services. Learners will gain knowledge about their community and access a wide variety of beneficial information about different services in the community. This class provides individual support that is available for the mental and physical health benefits for seniors out of the classroom setting. Being outside the classroom and involved with the community will help them feel connected, healthy, engaged and as productive members of their community. This course helps them develop English and computer skills, so they can focus on expanding their role and participation in society.
