The Jefferson Center for Learning and the Arts

The idea for our campus of nonprofit organizations came about when a handful of community activists stood back from a challenging project and saw a greater possibility. 

We love sharing the story of how a downtown neighborhood of dilapidated buildings was saved and then transformed, and we’ll take any opportunity given to  showcase today’s campus where innovation is fostered,  people are designing new endeavors, and organizations are delivering critical services.
