Independent Living Skills
Classes to help you live more independently
At MCIL, we believe that ALL people have the right to make their own decisions and direct their own lives. We offer a variety of hands-on classes, workshops and activities meant to help you develop and strengthen the skills you need to do what you think is most important.
We offer classes on easy and healthy cooking, preparing for the Minnesota Driver’s Permit written test, finding affordable housing, finding and keeping roommates, art for fun and relaxation, meet-ups out in the community, and more! We also periodically hold workshops for people to gain knowledge of specific resources, organizations, disability concerns, legislative action, and for socializing and networking.
