Diversity in Your Community: Booker Washington Community Center

Most have heard about the Booker Washington Community Center, but do you know what they do? Located at 524 Kent St. in Rockford, Booker Washington strives to improve quality of life for community members through education, art, and recreational and cultural programs. The center also promotes learning and sharing within Rockford’s multi-cultural community. Their programs include Helping Our Teens (HOT), Supplemental Education, Senior Services, Recreation, and Cultural Enrichment.

Booker Washington is always looking for volunteers, but if you can’t commit your time to volunteer, be sure to show your support for the center by attending the 2nd Annual Dancing with the Staff and Stars event at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 27, at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, 200 S. Bell School Road in Rockford. Tickets to the event, which will feature prominent citizens of the Rockford community, are $50. For more information, call Booker Washington at 815.962.9117.
