The Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley is set to host the latest in their free LifeForward workshop series on Saturday, April 27, which will focus on ways to overcome life’s challenges.

The series is designed to help empower participants to build the skills they need to succeed, according to Phyllis Walker, second vice president and membership chair at the Zonta Club.

This workshop will be led by Aazam Irillian, a certified therapeutic imagery and social-emotional arts practitioner, who will teach participants how to value their experiences and strengths so they can recognize their potential and fulfill their dreams.

“All of the speakers are subject-matter experts,” Walker said. “(Irillian) is very effective and won’t let (participants) sit and be passive. I saw a transformation and growth during a workshop she presented where someone’s self-worth visibly grew.”

Previous workshops have focused on cyberbullying, finances, anger management, communication, nutrition, exercise and parenting.

“We work with Single Mothers Outreach in developing the curriculum as they are part of our target audience,” Walker said. “But anybody is welcome.”

The April LifeForward workshop is scheduled 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, at the Child & Family Center’s Education building located at 21545 Center Pointe Parkway.

The workshop is free to attend and pre-registration is not required, but for more information on this or future workshops, visit www.scvzonta.org or call Single Mothers Outreach at 661-288-0117.
