Cultural Enrichment Program
Enriquecimiento Cultural

We strive to add value to our communities by providing cultural events and activities that enrich Central Oregon.  We sometimes take the lead on projects and sometimes we support projects of other community groups.  These events and activities provide a crucial space where members of our communities from all corners of the world can interact in positive, productive ways to enrich their lives, feel good about who they are, and build a more cohesive, resilient society.
