What We Do
SEGCC utilizes a grass-roots approach to fulfill our mission to facilitate community problem solving by bridging gaps in the community. Our efforts focus on connecting community members through social and cultural events; partnering with other organizations to better utilize resources and avoid duplication of effort; and promoting civic and economic engagement of Southeast Georgetown. We are working to fulfill these current initiatives:
Celebration of Community and Diversity
Includes activities such as East Side Artisans, a group of retired, professional, student and amateur artists formed to promote artistic expression in Georgetown’s east side; the San Jose Film Project, a documentary on Georgetown’s historic Hispanic neighborhood of San Jose; events for Pow Wow in The Park, helping community members learn more about local indigenous cultures.
Empowering Our Seniors
Includes activities such as workshops/discussions to help seniors plan for future life changes as they age, and gardening/healthy cooking workshops, in partnership with the local Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office.
Helping Families in Need
Our program “Facilities 4 Families” helps to support working and high-risk families with distance-learning by creating small, supervised, learning pods of a maximum of 10 students during the COVID-19 crisis.
