The Center for Living and Learning is a non-profit organization engaging in programs to aid disadvantaged persons in acquiring and holding stable employment, thus allowing them to become contributing members of society. Since 2001, we have provided successful vocational education to disadvantaged adults and at-risk youth. With over 125 apprentices assisted and counting, our organization has expanded consistently during the last year.

For those not accepted into our apprenticeship program we offer a job search preparation course teaching vital job search skills, including application and interview techniques.

In addition to our main vocational programs, we also donate to other charitable organizations whose aims align with ours. Further, we offer free web hosting and low-cost website development to other licensed charitable organizations.
