About our Community Learning Centers

Foundation Communities’ 12 on-site Learning Centers are the hub for all of our education programs. The Learning Centers are home to our after-school and summer programs for children and teens and our English as a Second Language classes for adults. The Learning Centers are the heart of our communities – a place where residents can gather and build lasting relationships.

By providing education programs right where people live, we eliminate the barriers of transportation, cost and childcare.
