The Sequoia Community Center is a Non-Profit 501©(3) on the site of the former Sierra School at 50151 Whitaker Forest Road, Badger CA 93603. A school has been on this site for over 100 years in one form or another and now the current building and grounds are transformed into a community center serving the local communities of Badger, Miramonte and Pinehurst. The school is owned by the Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District which is generously allowing us to use the premises for only $1 a month, with the understanding that it is run by a non-profit organization that organizes activities that educate and provide services that benefit the entire community
To connect and create opportunities for the residents of Badger, Pinehurst, and Miramonte
To enrich our foothill communities and bring enhanced
value and joy to mountain life.
Boost the Rooster!
We have decided that the mascot for our new fundraising drive is a rooster, crowing about success and heralding a new day for the community.
Join the Booster Club with small pledge of something like $10 to $50 a month.
We have the gift of $1/month rent for these amazing facilities from the School District, but we need a consistent income to pay for basic monthly expenses (electricity, propane, insurance, WiFi, promotion, upkeep). This will allow our all volunteer Board and others to continue with our efforts, as well as help attract more grants because we can show our community support.

SEQUOIA COMMUNITY CENTER EVENTS – Temporarily Suspended
In accordance with guidance from CDC and public health, the SCC Board of Directors has come to the difficult decision to temporarily suspend programming at the center. The situation with Covid-19 is changing rapidly. Since we are a community made up largely of the at-risk population, we feel responsible to do our part to ensure the safety and well being of the community. Therefore, we have cancelled classes and will postpone upcoming events.
The Board of Directors and volunteers will continue to work behind the scenes to plan and prepare the ongoing development of the center to bring classes, programs and events in the future.
We look forward to re-opening fully when the situation is clear. Until then, we wish you all a safe and healthy season.
Be sure to come to this Town Hall Meeting, hosted by Eddie Valero, who says ". I'm looking forward to connecting with Badger so that we can improve services and resources for this great community. We will have several staff from various departments available to answer any questions or concerns!"Join us for a lively conversations about what we would like to see here, along with coffee, tea, cookies and other snacks. info number - text or call 909-0253.
Eddie Valero has been wonderfully helpful to us. Here he is leading us in a discussion that helped us define our strengths and weaknesses as we developed the community center in an event last summer.
