Cobscook Community
Learning Center

Find Passion. Share Skills. Create Change.

The Cobscook Community Learning Center (CCLC) began in 1999 when a group of people in easternmost Maine joined together to find ways of improving life in this region. Together, we envisioned a hub of educational opportunity. The CCLC is that hub. Our mission is to create educational opportunities that strengthen personal, community, and global well-being.

The CCLC is about community wellness. And that means artistic, physical, economic, and educational wellness. We operate with the values of love, respect, humor, and creative bold adventure. Designed as a tool for social change, the center responds to community needs.

No matter what people come here to do – take yoga, pick up new computer skills, plant a garden, get a high school diploma, start a business, or learn to play piano – they do it all regardless of their ability to pay, and in the context of an enriching, supportive community.

Stop by anytime. The coffee is on.
