Welcome!

Wellesley Community Center is proud to host Diversity Summit IV



Coding Classes Start 9/29
In a world full of challenges, the Wellesley Community Center hosts the first ever workshop designed to address a modern social and economic dilemma; The Digital Divide. Luis Hoderlein, a WHS student, is spearheading the four week program designed to address this challenge on a local level. “What is the Digital Divide? In today’s digital world, access to technology and ability to handle it is as crucial as math and reading, but many children don’t have access to computers.” says Hoderlein.

Wellesley Digital Bridges offers programming classes to middle and high schoolers. All proceeds from these classes will go towards the purchase of computers or tablets which will be distributed to schools in disadvantaged areas, thus bridging the digital divide that exists between areas like Wellesley and under-served school districts.

In order to support this new thinking in civic engagement, the Wellesley Community Center be hosting this five-week class (on Python 2.7 coding) every Friday from 5:00PM until 6:30PM, beginning September 28 and ending October 27.  Registration is $195 per student for the coding class. 

Payments are made through: http://www.wellesleydigitalbridges.wordpress.com

Please note the Fall Semester is sold out.  Look for future notifications of the next class, soon.

A Message from the Executive Director


The WCC was established in 1977 as a Massachusetts non-profit to benefit the town of Wellesley and the MetroWest area. We retain an all-volunteer Board of Directors whose members serve to make our community a better place in which to live.  This is our fortieth year serving the community and surrounding area.
