The Multicultural Education Department is wonderful! Oak Park is always stating how diverse there community is and it is great to know they have a department in their school system that represents this!

The MultiCultural Center is unique and welcoming. So many excellent programs and one-of-a-kind artifacts. Learning to respect & appreciate our differences is even more relevant today as we gather in teams and groups to work, celebrate & recreate together. The Multicultural Center teaches us to value the contributions of everyone. Let's brainstorm to expand funding opportunities--so we can keep polishing this gem.

Everyone should come experience and enjoy the Multicultural Center before it becomes a past memory. Projected cost savings in District 97 include reducing the scope of this valuable resource, even to the point of eliminating it completely if District finances get worse. The Center is a resource to all in the community and to groups from around the area. Go see for yourself before it's gone!
