Couples will participate in four classes that will teach them how to improve these aspects of their relationship. Instruction will include interactive activities, discussions, and educational videos. The ELEVATE program is scheduled to start Friday, October 13th from 10:30-12:30, in the Mountain Lair on WVU’s Downtown Campus in the Blackwater Room.
