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 inter-generational activities, produced an award winning video on recycling, hosted Kwanzaa celebrations, organized community exhibits and worships, and placed volunteers in public schools.

Our programs include:

Annual 5th Ave. Arts Festival:  Celebrates African American culture through the arts
