Continuing Education Class

Continuing Education Class is a part-time program designed to accommodate adults that have graduated from MLC or other area schools and are looking to continue services with programs in music, PE, yoga and art. Creating market products such as food, jewelry and pottery helps trainees with valuable job skills while circuit training classes help keep them healthy and active. Most adults in the CEC work part-time positions and attend the classes on their days off.
