Well they provide a lot of different programs at a very reasonable price if any at all. They have Zumba, Guitar Lessons, Tia Chi, and many more for about a dollar or two. They also provide classes to enrich oneself and have many information on many different state programs available.

Over all my experience attenting the Women's Intercultural Center has been a great experince, I got to feel like I was part of them for the mean while. I enjoyed getting to see so manny diffferent faces as well as recognizing faces everyday whom they keep coming back. I helped around the store that the center provided, and also had people fill out questionarities for a project that the boss was working on. I also had the chance to meet and talk to older woman do to their personal experince. It was not only shoking to hear this touching stories, but it allowed me to value my self as an indivial and to recognize, and not let myself if I was ever to be in a situation like theirs. this experience also allowed me to attend and to be part of a Wiz Latina conference which was also a great experience that really moved me. For me not to forget whom we are and how special, and powerful we are and could be as Latinas. Overall my experience help me to gain confidence as a character and to believe in myself to achieve my goals in life. the center reminded me that woman are stronger that what they actually seem to be, and no matter how bad, painful, or awful a situation gets woman will always rise.

At the beginning of 1916 I began volunteering at the Center and LOVED it! Creating found object art workshops that refreshed the walls in the Art Gallery while showing participants that anyone could CREATE! Participants were given the option of keeping their work or making it available to sell. Due to circumstances I took a 'furlough' & am looking forward to return SOON!
1st photo: Friendship & International Women's Day. 2nd photo: Red All Over. 3rd photo: Father's Day, some Dad's attended! 4th photo: Happiness based on - The Pursuit of Happiness.
For me art is FUN & therapeutic. I consider it a joy to share the creative experience with others.

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!

From english classes to zumba, whatever you want to do to better your life this place is the one to go. Not to mention the staff I worked with were simply awesome! Beginning with Mary, she always brought out the best in me, always giving great advice when I needed.

I couldn't be more grateful to the women's Intercultural center. They're a great non profit organization that really seek to empower and help the community. They have so much to offer to each unique individual that comes through their door. You get to meet wonderful volunteers and teachers, they all make you feel welcome and part of a family. I was fortunate to have given the opportunity to be part of the team. Thank you Mary for all your support and all the knowledge you passed on. You helped me grow as a professional and a women. I feel that I've come out of my shell and gained confidence on what I am capable of achieving and value myself as a strong women now. Thank you women's Intercultural Center for a great experience.

I had a great experience at the center. The volunteers are friendly and helpful. I realized the center is made up of mainly volunteers. The services offered to the community and the women make an impact to families and create a better pathway of knowledge. The center programs events that invite the community families and encourages women to participate.
I had much fun participating and gaining this new experience.

The personnel/volunteers are very friendly and respectful. The nonprofit could improve by offering more workshops during the evenings and workshops to children and parents. Also, not assuming that volunteers know what the expectations are of doing certain things if they aren't shown or given examples of what is expected. Also, give volunteers the opportunity to interact more with the community, instead of doing secretarial work.

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.

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.
