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 for anyone who wants to get better at searching for and applying to jobs. Our staff will assist you with building a resume, filling out job applications, and preparing for interviews. Kelly, our workforce development coordinator, meets one-on-one with clients to help them establish and achieve career goals. To set up an appointment with Kelly, please call the Multi-Cultural Center 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 [email protected] 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. 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 available). Class size varies between 5-10 students in each course. Classes begin when there are 5 or more registered students. We are currently accepting registrations for our next six week course beginning on April 5th, 2022!

*Interested students can email at [email protected] 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.

*We are currently in need of black, non-slip shoes for men (size 8-13), women's dress shirts (all sizes), steel toe boots (size 8-13), and backpacks. 


Cultural Programs and Celebrations

We host multiple multiple cultural programs and celebrations each year, such as the Festival of Cultures each June at Falls Park. The Coliseum is used for events such as weddings, cultural festivities, community gatherings and educational opportunities.
