virtual Workshops/ Special Events

These in person events are currently postponed until further notice, we hope to return in 2021!

However, we are hosting online workshops! Visit our portal to view our schedule.

Our workshops and special events are planned and facilitated by the CEPI team alongside the program manager. 

What's unique about these activities is that they are based on the interests of the adults that participate in CEPI. The CEPI team will ask the adults what kinds of things they're interested to make sure that they take part in the decision making, since this is their program. We want to provide as much ownership and autonomy as possible.

These events are free to CEPI adults and we encourage many to come and participate!

  • Nuestro Arte Exhibit at Whittier City Hall-November 27th, 2018

Podcast & Digital Stories


The Community Education Program Initiative is honored to present Voces. A film where CEPI members from the local Whittier community share their voices and stories, just as they have been with their podcast. This film will have you pause and think about life in different ways and think about the little things in life that need to be embraced rather than forgotten. It will bring you laughter, joy, empowerment, and admiration

amongst other feelings.
