Programs & Activities

Mount Horeb Community Education Center and Yoga with Marca have formed a partnership for wellness! Together, we developed a series of instructional videos designed to guide community members of all ages and abilities in the stress reducing practices of yoga, meditation and mindfulness. These tutorials on the left are designed for beginners. Take some time for yourself and do a little yoga today!

Program Participation

MHCEC programs and activities will be available to community members of all ages. We strictly follow the current Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) guidelines for in person programs and activities. These include limited group size, requiring face masks, social distancing and cleaning/sanitizing between groups. Due to COVID-19 we will not be able to provide IN PERSON drop-in programming, so sign up is required. In person participating community members and volunteers must be registered in advance, and attendance is taken upon arrival. 

Program Locations

MHCEC programs and activities are located in and around MHASD communities. Our home base is currently located at 222 Front Street inside the old Police Station building. In this location we have study and work spaces for students and community members who need a quiet place to work. We also have meeting rooms for tutoring, community groups and social interest groups. Reliable internet access provided by MHTC.

Participation Fees

The participation fee for attendance will be by suggested donation only, therefore, no participant will be denied access to MHCEC programs or activities based on their ability to pay. We encourage participants to adjust their suggested donation amount, as needed or desired, in order to meet their own needs, or in order to help another participant. Sponsorship donations for community members who are not able to pay are encouraged and welcomed.

Programs and Activities

Our efforts are designed to support and respond to identified needs and impacts of COVID 19 to our local community, specifically residents of the Mount Horeb Area School District. Identified needs include virtual learning assistance, physical activity and wellness, social connections and mental health supports.

Can You Help?

MHCEC is a privately insured, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is funded, managed and operated entirely by donations and volunteers. All donations are tax deductible and all adult volunteers are screened and have completed and passed a background check.

High school volunteers can earn silver cord hours for time they spend leading and assisting younger students and community members in a variety of ways. Adult volunteers may be parents, retirees, college students, veterans, grandparents, business community members, and more.

If you or someone you know can help, please go to our Get Involved page and make a donation or complete the VOLUNTEER SURVEY. Thank you for your support!

Beyond COVID-19

Our initial focus is to assist students, their families and the community, with programs and activities that provide immediate support and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to evolving to meet additional needs of the community as they arise and well into the future. We would love to hear your ideas for future programming. Please reach out to us at vikingcomed@gmail.com to share your thoughts. We welcome and appreciate community participation.
