Teen Classes

Live web-based classes via Zoom. Due to the ending of the Covid-19 emergency order all web-based classes must end by 11/30/22. If you for sure want a web-based class, please sign up for classes that finish by 11/30/22 (WT88 is the last web-based class). The DOL is in the process of making a rule change that will hopefully allow web-based classes beyond that. Classes starting December 2022 will be held pending the DOL rule change. If for some reason it doesn’t pass then we will contact you to move you to an in-person class which will only be scheduled if the DOL rule change doesn’t happen.
