Hybrid Program Information

Support for members ages 18+

During these unprecedented times, our Clubhouse has started a Hybrid Program that combines traditional in-person work with virtual programming on Zoom. Below you will see descriptions of the various aspects of our programming. 

 

 

MHAM Wear Green!

Wellness Works

The Wellness Works program offers opportunities to improve overall health. The program supports and encourages an active lifestyle. Wellness Works leads daily wellness times such as guided stretches, Sit and Be Fit and wellness walks. The program has partnered up with USF nursing students to continue the conversation on the importance of active lifestyles.

Career Development

The Career Development Program is available to all members that are ready to find and acquire their own job. This program supports members through the steps of the job search process, such as creating and updating resumes, applying to jobs, and preparing for interviews. The Clubhouse is fully committed to supporting members in reaching their employment goals. 

This program hosts Job Club and Job Search, weekly online meetings that focus on skills such as finding job postings, sending business emails, learning interview etiquette, and building resumes. The program also hosts monthly Employment Dinners tailored to members currently employed or looking for employment. 

During the COVID 19 pandemic, we support members in filing for unemployment. Career Development works side-by-side with our members to make the filing process as easy and stress-free as possible.

Young Adult Program

The Young Adult Program (YAP) is tailored to engage members between the ages of 18-35. This program focuses on engaging young adults in the work-ordered day through meaningful and intentional reach-out. The YA program publishes articles in the monthly Newsletter and hosts regular Lunch and Learns on various topics such as ‘Getting Along with Roommates’, ‘Dating with a Mental Illness’, and ‘Finding your Direction’. The program also focuses on supporting members through education goals by hosting a monthly Student Soiree. This dinner is tailored to all members currently in school or looking to go back to school. Also, the YAP seeks to create a support system for the young adults by hosting one YAP-focused social event per month. 
 
The YAP also takes on public relations roles by handling the Clubhouse social media accounts. 

Evening Chats

The Clubhouse offers chats in the evenings, outside of the Work-Ordered Day, to provide a safe space for members to connect via Zoom. Evening Chats are available Monday - Friday 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm, and Fireside Chat is available Sunday night 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm.  

Membership to California Clubhouse is not necessary.

Education

The Clubhouse supports our community in their educational paths by providing a place to learn. For example, we provide spaces to study in person within the building and online through Zoom Study Hall, as well as technology for members who need it for their education. The Clubhouse also offers in-house opportunities to learn through the weekly Spanish Class and Lunch and Learns on various topics. In addition, we train our community to uphold the Clubhouse Standards by sending colleagues to Clubhouse International conferences and training bases around the world.  

We offer resources for local schools, both academic and vocational. Also, we connect colleagues to educational opportunities in the greater community, such as webinars by various organizations and peer counseling classes held by Caminar. Because our education and employment programs work hand in hand, we also support training for vocational courses such as Food Handler certification. Clubhouse is a place where individuals can learn by doing!
