Community Learning & Engagement Lab

Welcome to our Community Learning & Engagement Lab, the programming arm of Bay View Community Center’s operations. Through the lab, you’ll have access to a variety of low cost programming, public events, and volunteer opportunities. Our mission is simple: We Build Community. Whether that be through the work of our Emergency Food Pantry in food security and fresh food access, by bringing neighbors together around a common hobby or interest, or by mobilizing individuals in service, we aim to bring people together as a means to positively impact the lives of the individual and the community at large.

We are excited to begin to phase in our legacy programs as well as bring you new and exciting activities and experiences this Spring and Summer. If you are looking for cooking classes, wine tastings, or senior gatherings, don’t worry! They are scheduled to be phased in at the end of Summer/Early Fall as safety allows. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this new reality together. In the navigation bar here on the website, you’ll find more information on our three core programming areas: Activities for Family & Youth; Activities for Adults; and Group Experiences, Tours, and Tips.

On behalf our Board of Directors and our staff and volunteer team, I hope you’ll join us as we bring our four organizational guiding principles to life: Equity & Justice; Fresh Food Access & Food Security; Environmental Stewardship & Sustainability; and Intentional & Reciprocal Relationships. We are excited to invite you back and are beyond grateful for all of the support we have received in the last year.
