Calgary Society of Community Opportunities

Core Program:

When you join programs and activities at CSCO, you will be teamed up with a Support Worker and other people who have the same interests as you.


Most of the time, you will be in a group with one Support Worker and two other people. If you need it, we can give you extra support.


The first three months that you come to a CSCO. You, your Support Worker and the other people who support you will work together to find out what you are interested in and what your needs are. You can also try any of the activities that are currently at CSCO.

After three months, you, your Support Worker and the Program Coordinator will make a plan so you can reach your goals. After deciding what your goals and interest are, you can decide what activities you want to join. Most people join interest groups on-site and go on outings in the community.

Interest groups on-site include many life skills that you can learn which will help you to do things on your own, get along with others and take care of yourself. You can join interest groups with other people who enjoy the same activities as you, like cooking, computers and crafts. Outings in the community are very important for everyone. Activities include outings to the library, volunteering, art, a variety of sports, vocational and social time.
