The Cultural Arts Coalition offers educational empowerment programs that help at-risk youth develop leadership and healthy lifestyles. The programs also teach the kid ways that they can protect our natural resources.
Throughout the years, the CAC has arranged intergenerational activities, produced an award winning video on recycling, hosted Kwanzaa celebrations, organized community exhibits and worships, and placed volunteers in public schools.
