what is a unit?

Clubhouse activities are organized around a Work-Ordered Day. Tasks are divided into work units that support the running of NorthStar while supporting members individual goals. Tasks of the units include meal planning and preparation, record-keeping, advocacy, and new member outreach. Members choose work according to their personal goals and interests.


At NorthStar's core is a community in which relationships grow through shared purpose and working side-by-side. Unlike similar programs that merely simulate work, all clubhouse member contributions are critical to our operations. Our staff is small enough that maintaining our organization is impossible without member involvement.
