Our Training Programs Work.
STAR of Coastal Georgia offers a variety of programs designed to fit into different people's needs and timeframes. Our training ranges from multiple-week, comprehensive instruction to 2-hour workshops. Although each course's main focus varies, students also learn important aspects throughout the class, such as goal setting, problem solving, conflict resolution, and education achievement. Those individuals residing in public housing may qualify for required community service hours. Please inquire when registering for a course.
In addition to our regularly scheduled workshops and courses, we offer additional instruction on special topics of interest. For a current schedule of programs, scroll to the calendar at the bottom of this page, or click here.
