Welcome to the CATS Corner



There’s Always Something New at CATS!


If monotony is causing restlessness, join us at CATS events and activities! We have a variety of events scheduled through December 15, including a new series entitled, the Straight Talk – courageous conversation series and a super Saturday Bootcamp featuring three job-search workshops. Taking action towards achieving your ultimate goals may empower you and help you break through dark (literally) times. November can be tough with the lack of light and increasingly cold temperatures, and this year, the pandemic is adding an extra layer of challenge. It’s important to stay connected when you may feel disconnected, and that’s where the CATS community comes in! Our events provide the opportunity to meet other SCS learners, which may help break the routine and enhance your mood.


We may be socially distancing, but we can still get social! Email us at or connect with us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn!


Virtually yours,


The CATS Team
