Since opening in October 2006, the Padua Center has helped local youth learn the principles of unity, self-determination, collective work, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith through special programming. Providing resources, like academic assistance, physical exercise, peace education, pottery, and more, the Pauda Center’s Christian, community-based presence has made a difference in the lives of Toledoan children and teens. Get involved by volunteering as a tutor. Retired citizens, college students and high school students are welcome to stop by from 3:30-5pm on Monday through Thursday to help tutor.
