Mable Washington Learning Center opens in Palestine neighborhood

The Mable Washington Learning Center will open its doors to the community on Friday, June 29, with classes and resources planned to help the neighborhood continue to grow.

Named after neighborhood leader and Palestine Neighborhood Development Corporation (PNDC) founder and past president Mable Washington, the center grew out of recent community demand for access to learning resources

Afterschool programming, GED preparatory classes, computer training, and skills development for those trying to obtain a job will all be offered at the center.

The Urban Agriculture Center will teach residents and youth about the importance of growing and eating healthy food, especially in food insecure neighborhoods such as theirs, as well as how to start a garden.

The Mable Washington Learning Center is located at 3326 Indiana Ave. in a renovated house owned by the PNDC.

A grand opening will be held on Friday, June 29 at 3pm at the center.
