Adult Programs

Our adult programs provide education and assistance to refugees and immigrants, cultural events and celebrations, and community education.

Workforce Development Program

This free program is aimed at anyone who is looking to elevate their job searching and applying skills. Our staff assist with everything from resume building, to job applications, to practice interviews. Kelly, our workforce development coordinator, meets one-on-one with clients to help establish and achieve career goals for each individual who walks through her door. To set up an appointment with Kelly, please call us at 605-367-7401.

*Interpreting services are available on request.

 

Driver's Education

At this time we have paused our driver education classes to reassess our program and work with other community providers to create a more comprehensive curriculum. We are still providing translation services at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Please email info@mcc.org or call us at 605-367-7401 to learn more about translation services at your DMV appointment.

*There is a fee associated with translation services for the DMV.

 

English Classes 

Tuesday and Thursday, 6pm-8pm
In partnership with Southeast Technical College (at 2320 N. Career Ave.), we offer English classes to English language learners throughout the year. New students may begin on the first Tuesday of each month and timeliness is required for each participant.

Participants are required to provide an original Social Security card and a government issued photo ID with birthdate, as well as materials necessary for the class (i.e. pens, paper etc.). Students are placed into leveled classes based on testing information and testing must be done as close to the start date as possible.

 

Language Classes

The Multi-Cultural Center also offers Spanish classes to interested individuals. It is a 6-week course for beginner level students, and the registration fee is $100 with all materials provided. Students meet once a week for 2 hours with the instructor (virtual or in-person options are also available). Class size varies between 5-10 students in each course, and classes begin when there are 5 or more registered students. Our current session is starting from Tuesday, September 14th-October 19th, 2021.
Interested students can email at interpreter@sfmcc.org for more info.

 

Career Closet Program

Monday-Friday, 9am-1pm
Our Career Closet is a collection of donated career and work clothing for visitors to take what they need to enter or continue in the workforce. The Closet relies on community donations of clean, gently worn men’s and women’s clothing. We also accept accessories such as jewelry, ties, and shoes. Donations are accepted from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

 

Cultural Programs and Celebrations

We host multiple cultural programs and celebrations each year. Besides events, like the Festival of Cultures each June at Falls Park, various ethnic communities host events in The Coliseum.
