The Scontras Center provides training, education, and resources to unions, community groups, and worker organizations. We strive to develop deep partnerships with our surrounding communities and to serve as a bridge between the university and residents across Maine. We take a hands-on, community outreach approach to create participatory, popular education classes that make complex subjects such as workers’ rights and labor history accessible to working-class generations and New Mainers alike.
