Be part of our exciting array of cultural, educational, and recreational programs for adults. Join staff in facilitating programs that foster a culture of learning and connectedness among our community members.

Our book clubs, wellness activities, gaming, and craft activities provide the chance to engage with the community participants.

Volunteers also help with creating a welcoming space by setting up and/or cleaning up programs.
