Our Mission

It is the mission of the Dorchester Community Center Alliance to foster inclusive participation by working with the community to improve the quality of life for our youth by providing enrichment opportunities for youth in grades 5th through 9th in the Town of La Plata and surrounding areas. This mission can be achieved by active participation of community volunteers in engaging youth in sports, mentoring, tutoring, and social and life skills development.
