Champions In Action – Charter Oak Cultural Center

Citizens Bank and News 8 proudly present our 42nd Champion in Action award for youth services to Charter Oak Cultural Center.

Their mission is to harness the power of the arts to create and instill positive social change.  They do this by providing thousands of Greater Hartford citizens access to the arts regardless of income.

Charter Oak’s Youth Arts Institute reaches over one thousand inner-city children, ages 6 to 18, through its in-schools and after-school arts and literacy based classes.

For more information on the Center and their programs please visit their website here.
