The goal at UCC is to engage youth and help them set high goals for their education and future job possibilities. By focusing on the need to complete homework assignments, master the core school subjects, and seek and benefit from after-school tutoring, UCC helps Hispanic youth on Milwaukee's near south side provide themselves with a brighter future. Youth participating in the cultural arts and after-school programs perform better in their academic subjects at school.
