Equipping people to serve and help others is a big part of what Options Care Centre does.
The training that we offer focuses primarily on counselling and supplying relevant information regarding the key areas we work in. Our training courses are not limited to individuals who want to be involved at Options. Anyone from the general public can sign up for our training courses and the skills acquired can be applied to various situations.
We regularly present the following courses:
Level One - Offers an introduction into the ministry of Options; focusing on pregnancy, HIV/Aids and related concerns. We take a realistic and Biblical look at the issues faced by our youth and families.
For those who have completed Level 1:
Equipped to Serve - focuses on developing the mindset and skills to connect with and support people in crisis.
HIV Care and Education - takes an updated look at the facts relating to HIV/Aids, empowering people to care for and support those infected and affected by the virus.
We love going to schools and doing workshops and facilitating classroom discussion. We do the "Undiluted" series with grade 7's preparing them for the pressure of teenage sexuality. We also visit high schools where we equip students to navigate these pressures in a healthy, Biblical manner.
From time to time we facilitate and present other training courses. We are also available to facilitate workshops at different locations. For more information on any of these courses, their prices or the next dates they are being presented, please contact our office.
