Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural’s (TCCC) mission is to transform community through ancestral knowledge, the arts, literacy and creative engagement. TCCC provides a positive space for people to activate their natural capacity to create, imagine and express themselves in an effort to improve the quality of life for their community.
Embracing the philosophy that every youth is a warrior of their own struggles, the Youth Warrior program helps develop youth leadership and communication skills through the power of the arts and proper mentoring.
“Young Warriors has shared with me the autonomy we have to choose the life we want to live and what impact we want to have within ourselves and with the people around us.”
“Tia Chucha’s youth empowerment program, Young Warriors takes a unique approach to youth development to help young people develop their leadership and communication skills through the power of the arts and proper mentoring. We are excited for the opportunity to expand this work to new partnerships with the support of the Ready to Rise initiative.”
