HarborActive is back in session with all new class formats, personalized training, and a new location. Classes are now smaller in size so that the local community can have a more personal learning experience. Classes and training will be held in a new casual co-working setting.
“HARBOR, Inc. recently opened The Loft Coworking Space in Harbor Springs and we held our first HarborActive class in the space,” stated Rachel Smolinski, Executive Director of HARBOR, Inc. “The format is much more casual and offers an interactive means of learning which is in line with our new co-working space. The feedback from students was very positive!”
HarborActive is the brainchild of Rachel Smolinski of HARBOR, Inc. and Marcie Wolf of Abuzz Creative. Classes and seminars help the local community embrace the use of technology with hands-on training.
“Our seminars are focused on today’s challenges for business such as managing social media and reaching new markets through online advertising,” said Marcie Wolf, HarborActive Coordinator and owner of Abuzz Creative. “We are one of the few places that provides hands-on learning experiences for adults on their own devices, and now our classes are held where students can feel comfortable asking questions while they learn.”
Upcoming classes will now be held at The Loft Coworking Space on Main Street in downtown Harbor Springs. Some classes will be small roundtable sessions with four or five students while other sessions are casual gatherings around the couches with beverages and bites to enhance the learning experience.
“We will also be offering one-on-one training for people who have more specific needs and would prefer a tutoring session,” said Wolf. “People can reserve a one-hour time slot to learn things like how to update their WordPress website, how to use PhotoShop and Canvas, or specific social media tasks they might be struggling with.”
As part of the new programming, HarborActive recently unveiled a new look and a redesign of their website.
“Abuzz Creative just launched a new website for HarborActive with new branding and a more user-friendly layout,” stated Smolinski. “The new website makes it much easier for our students to register for classes and our new one-on-one-training.”
