CMLC is a community-based learning center where individuals and families of all cultures come together to share, mentor, and understand their different cultures, to access resources, and to build a cohesive community in a safe, welcoming environment.
CMLC needs volunteers to staff the center. Greet visitors, converse with people from other countries, work on special projects and more. Mondays, Wednesday afternoons and Fridays mid-day are currently open. For more information contact the center.
Resources and programming are free. No appointment is necessary during the open hours, Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
CMLC encourages active exchange of ideas and conversation. People of all beliefs coming to the center should feel comfortable; therefore, religious proselytizing has no place in the connections made at the center.
