Alder Commons is a non-profit community center where kids and adults alike can attend workshops & classes, and spend their time freely. Our Members are coworkers, makers, and learners of all ages.
Our mission is to cultivate an equitable, all-ages community of self-directed learners. We aim to reduce barriers between youth and adults of diverse backgrounds by providing an accessible and inclusive space for them to share knowledge and resources.
