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!
