Much of the liveliness and community of WRAC comes from our support, discussion, and enrichment groups. All groups are led by trained facilitators, most of whom are student and community volunteers with interests and skills they want to share.
Group participation is free unless otherwise stated (such as for purchase of supplies needed for group activities), though we do request participants’ help to defray WRAC’s costs with donations of $10 for the total duration of each group, if they can.
