Dedicated Programmers

Overview

Dedicated Programmers at the Community Learning Center fill out an application and interview with the Programming Committee of the Board. Ann Linson, Mayor Suzanne Handshoe, Candice Holbrook and Julia Tipton see if these programmers meet the criteria necessary to be a good partner working along side other non profits housed within the CLC. These partners are collaborative and are working to meet the needs of community members with Work Force Development, Health and Wellness and through the Arts with Social and Emotional support. These dedicated programmers are housed within the center and meet monthly with the Executive Director to further the Mission of The Community Learning Center. They collaborate together to ensure that these non profits do not work in isolation, but rather share services to ensure economic sustainability and skill development. They are able to access all areas of the center to further their programming while collaborating with other programmers and the community to ensure progress of our Mission.

Noble Trails

All across the country, people head out to their neighborhood trails to get exercise, a breath of fresh air, and relax. Their communities have realized the benefits of trails, and have worked hard to develop their trail systems to provide their friends and family:

 

  •  Safe routs to travel from their homes to favorite destinations.
  • Free-to-use exercise facilities that help address the increasing epidemic of our sedentary lifestyle, such as obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
  • Nature corridors that promote wildlife and conserve green space.
  • Destination for tourism and economic development.
  • Amenities that improve property value.
