Enhancing education in our community
The Ponderosa Center’s vision includes education as one of its major focus areas. Since the organization’s beginning, steps have been taken to engage multiple partners to work together toward a robust offering of educational opportunities for the entire community. Whether your passion is higher ed, workforce development or unique opportunities to learn creatively, the Ponderosa Center is committed to providing a place to make that happen.
Our Community Relations Committee and its Education Taskforce is working hand in hand with representatives from universities, community colleges and other nonprofit groups to create an environment where learning is part of everyday life.
