Adult Learning

Adult Learning programs serve adults over the age of 21 from Trinity's residential programs, as well as persons living with family members or served by other agencies.

In Trinity’s Adult Learning programs, located at several different sites, participants engage in a wide range of activities that teach basic skills for independent living. These include health and safety, culinary arts, nutrition, and environmental awareness. Or, they focus on gaining the skills needed to find a job, maintain personal finances, and become more self-reliant.

More than 400 people participate in the Illinois-based Adult Learning programs, which are located in Edwardsville, Joliet, Frankfort, New Lenox, Des Plaines, Mascoutah, and Wilmington.


Horticulture

One of Adult Learning's most innovative experiences is the Horticulture program. Small groups learn about foliage plants, flowers, vegetables, and seasonal plants. The benefits include: sensory stimulation, physical exercise, development of hand-eye coordination and both fine and gross motor skills, socialization, and increased self-esteem.

Woodworking

Another unique learning experience can be found at New Lenox Woodworks. There, participants learn the skills of designing, building and finishing wood products. They produce a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture, decorations, games and other items.
