Sebastopol Community Center Programs
We both produce our own programs and collaborate with other people and groups to help them with their projects in the Sebastopol Area.
Our desire is for the Sebastopol Community to have wonderful programs available to all ages and to aid the passionate people and groups who are making Sebastopol a great place to live.
If you have a project or an idea that you would like to pursue, feel free to contact us to see how we might be able to aide you.
Our in-house programs aim to bring the children of this community the art, excersice and creative experiences so needed at a young age.
