The new George Washington Carver Community Center serves as beacon in the heart of our city enhancing and providing for a higher quality of life for all. Our newly transformed center provides an environment that attracts youth, adults, and seniors through quality programming and interesting opportunities to grow as a person—and as a community.

In order to meet our goals to serve the community to its fullest potential, we recently updated, renovated, and expanded our entire facility. We enlarged and renovated our auditorium/performing arts center; added a visual and fine arts room, two multi-purpose rooms allowing flexible space for classrooms, tutoring, and events. We enhanced the game and social activity room; created a youth and young adult media and cultural center; started an art gallery, community health education and wellness room; as well as a micro job training and career incubator center; and expanded the kitchen. Special attention was given to the senior center room to re-engage our aging population; updated the fitness room, banquet room, staff offices, and community meeting spaces to make the facility accommodating and attractive to community groups. The always busy gymnasium has a completely new floor where athletes of all ages gather and play. We also included in our renovations roof, walls, air conditioning, technology, electrical wiring and restroom repairs. We invested in a quality security system throughout the building for secure access and quality control of all the various events happening at the center.

We’ve been busy. And it’s all being used today. We’re making our community better because we are George Washington Carver Community Center and we believe in Peoria.
