To kick off each fiscal year - in August - we host an Open House at the Cohn School.

Each event will have instructors there to talk with the community about their skills and classes and show example projects. In addition, we will have face painting, balloons, performances from local schools, radio DJs, and more for entertainment!

Become a Presenting Sponsor

Our event is unique in that we reach an audience that is actively looking for new activities and are engaged in supporting local opportunities. We would like to partner with your business in an effort to expand our reach, increase adult learners, and present you as an engaged business to the community. Being a Presenting Sponsor comes with a number benefits, including advertisement through NCE networks and high visibility at our events.

We are especially seeking food sponsors for the Fall Open House! For more information please download our Sponsorship Info Packet.
