Creating a more inclusive Center since 1984!
We provide opportunities to people of all ages and abilities, races and backgrounds, and genders and sexual orientations for inclusion in all programs; a primary service goal of the St. Paul JCC is to provide an environment that supports individuals and their families to participate in any and all available programming. An important way that we meet this service goal is through our Inclusion program, which specializes in disability-geared programming.REGISTER FOR UPCOMING EVENTS
