Williams Community Learning Center

Overview

Williams Community Learning Center is a component of Williams Unified School District.  It is a program focused on “Systems Change.”  Systems Change is a joint effort by the community to understand the workings of the Williams community.  Together, they explore how aspects of their community work or do not work and how they can change or improve those that do not work. 

Duties

Williams Community Learning Center offers different placement in which interns can experience the workings of the community collaboration of Systems Change, the main one being with Williams Alliance Against Drug Abuse (WAADA) is an effort to unite the citizens of Williams to prevent and reduce the illicit use of Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) throughout the community of Williams. 

The Alliance recognizes that strengthening families and providing positive life skills is one to the most effective ways of preventing substance abuse.  The Alliance brings together community resources to deliver services and activities to support the mission. 

However, in addition to WAADA, this internship can include placement in other services Williams Community Learning Center offers, such as:

  • Family Parent Center
  • social services outreach
  • volunteer coordination and recruitment
  • a variety of youth programs (Fit and Strong, Pay it Forward, Builders Club, Spanish Club, etc.).
