Reviews for Women's Intercultural Center Inc
I've visited The Women's Intercultural Center for numerous years, initially donating books and other items so I've had the opportunity to watch it evolve. As a found object artist who is tired of 'lugging' my work around to small markets, I decided at the end of 2015 that I would contact nonprofits from Las Cruces, NM down to El Paso, TX offering my art to be used in fundraisers. Nice idea until I realized the time, etc. in doing that! One day, out of the blue, I receive a phone call from Mary Carter. She told me how she remembered the art curating I had done some years back at a local utility company and 'might' I be interested in doing the same for The Center? WOULD I? YOU BET I would! Also that she recognized the need to expand the art programs which would also benefit the community.
I am SO looking forward to working with this dynamic person, curating, conducting art workshops and bringing more affordable art to the area. Art is a venue that lifts people up, that teaches life skills along with problem solving. It's an equalizer in the sense that anyone can create! on and on and on!
2016 WILL BE a great year for The Women's Intercultural Center!
I was a volunteer at The women's intercultural center and it was a really good experience. This center is helping the community to grow; it is doing a really good job by giving different programs and classes to people to learn something new. Each members are kind and treat you well. It was a really good experience. I think they can improve if they put the information of their programs in schools so that more jouth can come into the center to learn something new, get them to involve in their community and not being outside in the streets.
fue una gran experiencia participar en este centro. muchas gracias ! ! !
I volunteered at Women's Intercultural Center from October 2015 up until January 2016. It was an unforgettable experience. First, with Mary, executive director of WInC. From day one that I met her she drowned me with her intelligence and advice. In these few months she taught me different life lessons, and opened a different perspective on how to look at things. I was able to gain different types of work experience. Whether it was being the emcee at special events to marketing, she always believed in me and knew I would do a good job. The staff here at WInC are very welcoming, very polite and they treat you with respect. The way the Center helps so many people, giving away canned food and clothing for the less fortunate, gifts for Christmas, some free programs, etc., it's something that I will forever be in awe. I love the programs that the Center has to offer and I encourage you to inform yourself of the different events and programs the Center has to offer. I'm glad I got the opportunity to work here and be able to learn so many different things here at Women's Intercultural Center.
I volunteered at the Women's Intercultural Center for the past few months. I was impressed by the wide variety of cultural events and social services that they offer to the local community. The topics of classes range from the English language, Zumba, guitar, and U.S. Citizenship. They also host a variety of other programs and services to community, focusing on culture and empowering women. Overall, it is a great place and I learned a lot from my volunteer experience there!
I did service learning hours at the Women's Intercultural Center and it was a great experience. They treat people with respect and dignity without distinctions, even though the center is intended to help transform the lives of women they also open their doors to men and children. It is a place where you can see a multicultural agency developing where stereotypes are breaking down and consciousness is being raised.
Reaching isolated populations, provides great classes at affordable prices, fellowship and spiritual support
I like it alot they're are really nice people and they help alot to people in need in every where. I recommend this center
