Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Proudly Productive today. Colleen and her amazing team of workers will have no shortage of experiences and outcomes to record in EarlyWorks! So much happening here: orders to fill, customers to serve, rocks to decorate, furniture to upcycle and, of course, cleaning up to be done.
The vision for Proudly Productive is creating an environment that replicates a workplace, where clients feel at ease and motivated to learn, essential life, social and employment skills required to potentially move into paid employment or in turn could use to turn a hobby into a social enterprise, setting up their own little boutique business as either an online Facebook Shop or regular market stall. This allows clients to sustain the hobby and give it some higher purpose and meaning adding to the sense of achievement.
