After-school programs, special events, and workshops take place daily, all year round. CCE programs have a special emphasis on serving diverse and vulnerable children and youth. Our role is to provide a safe, fun, supportive and loving learning environment, where kids can grow and develop their own sense of self. IMPACT: We provide low-income and at-risk children and youth with the ability to develop autonomy and purpose. We use the arts and technology to teach basic life skills such as commitment, focus, discipline, teamwork, empathy, collaboration, listening and caring. This “artistic literacy” helps students create, respond, and connect. We are not striving to develop professional artists but rather to use the arts to develop creative, committed, and active citizens. GOALS: We envision every child having access to fun, innovative high-quality programs that are accessible, affordable and equitable and where our youth are safe, seen and supported. We want to build a legacy of personal strength, confidence, integrity, intelligence, community and creativity. For more information about CCE, visit or call 845- 338-7664.
