About the CLTC
Formerly the LCCAA Family Learning Center, the new Community Learning and Technology Center (CLTC) now serves as a one-stop training facility for the Agency while serving as a community resource and lifelong learning center. The CLTC serves families, children, and adults of all ages through collaborative partnerships that provide support services and opportunities to the community in a welcoming center equipped with today's technology such as Wi-Fi, a projection system, and classroom computers.
The mission of Community Learning & Technology Center is all about you. CLTC is dedicated to delivering programs and services that respond to individual, community, and workforce needs. The community benefits from the CLTC through access to family activities, adult programs, coordination of community resources to meet the social and economic needs of residents; and a heightened sense of community.
