SOS: School for Off-Season Survival is our home for evening courses, weekend seminars, pop-ups, and peer-mentoring groups. We’ve lined up an exciting roster of classes taught by local instructors, with a focus on small business support, personal development and wellness, creative entrepreneurship, language skills and more.

What better way to develop a skill, dive deeper into an existing practice or build a new business than off-season on MV?!

We’ve heard the distress calls, and we’re ready to take you from surviving to thriving. It’s all in a winter’s work…

Watch this space and follow us on socials for schedule updates, instructor spotlights, course announcements and more!

The SOS program is sponsored in part by grant funding from Rockland Trust, Cape Cod Five, Santander and MV Bank.
