CMLC is in need of volunteer staff! Volunteering as staff is a great way to meet people from all over the world! We have a number of open time slots. Please e-mail the center to volunteer.

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.

Resources and programming are free. No appointment is necessary during the open hours, Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
