Get Ready to ZOOM! We are here to support you!
Many of our offerings are now online. To make the most of your Ellsworth Adult Ed courses, please register for this training so you are ready to join ZOOM with confidence and all will run smoothly for you and for others during your class or workshop.
Online courses are generally shorter than in-person sessions, so we strive to do everything we can to ensure that the course starts on time by addressing technical issues in advance. Our support is individualized and involves a survey (phone or email), resources (guides and videos), and in-person or online practice sessions. Before your online course begins, you will need:
- a device with a camera and microphone (internal or external);
- access to ZOOM on your device;
- knowledge of how to join a ZOOM meeting;
- the ability to navigate the buttons on the ZOOM screen;
- an understanding of how to use communication tools like chat, hand raising and more; and,
- an awareness of etiquette to make the most of the experience for you and for others.
This workshop will prepare you! We will be there to support you so you can make the most of your Ellsworth Adult Education workshops, as well as connect with family, friends, religious services and meetings. Please reach out to us!
Live online or in-person training; ongoing enrollment.
All parents have challenges and during these times parenting can be overwhelming. You are not alone!
Are you interested in parent education that doesn’t tell you how to parent? Looking for simple and practical strategies you can adapt to suit your own values, beliefs and needs? Then the Triple P Positive Parenting Program is for you. The benefits can be dramatic and long-lasting. This particular series supports families with children up to age 12.
This 3-part series, live online, focuses on sharing ideas to:
- encourage behavior you like;
- deal with problem behavior;
- become confident as a parent;
- be realistic about parenting; and
- help you take care of yourself.
These seminars will be interactive so you'll have time to ask questions. You will also receive handouts on topics of interest to you. We hope it is just the beginning providing support for parents in our community! We encourage your input! This is a live online class.
Makeup class, if needed, 10/21/21.

This program is brought to you by the Ellsworth School Department in support of every child's first teachers!
Families First Community Center is seeking empathetic, positive and sensitive volunteers who would like to support parents as they embark on a path to improve the lives of their children, themselves and their families, by developing their potential to become self-sufficient.
VIFS (Volunteer in Family Service) will support, encourage and assist families to fulfill the life plan developed by the parents, with the support of their case manager. The role of the VIFS is to provide positive communication and support. The needs of each family will be unique, so thoughtful planning will be involved with finding the right match.
This in-person information session will involve a tour of the center, discussion of role and commitment of a Volunteer in Family Service, sharing of tools for communication, and plans for ongoing support of volunteers. This is an in-person session.
If you are interested in this program but are unable to attend this information session, please contact Annie Sargent at email@example.com and we will reach out to you!
