Mountain District Learning Centre (MDLC) was established in 1974 as Mountain District Women's Co-operative Ltd which remains the legal entity for the organisation. In the early years the "Co-op" focussed on progressing the interests of local women by supporting the sale of hand-made craft items, providing an independent income for the women. The Co-op offered access to local community education, making academic achievement a reality for many women.
Today the Centre provides opportunities for men and women, young and old to access programs for eduction, skill development, friendship and enjoyment.
Mountain District Learning Centre (MDLC) is a Learning and Community Centre, whose purpose is to enhance the lives of people, of all ages, in the Mountain District. It does this by providing education in a supportive environment, and by building stronger communities.
