BOARD & STAFF

Centro Cultural Hispano (CCH) was organized in 1997 as a result of a grassroots movement by the Hispanic residents of Oyster Bay & East Norwich.CCH is directed entirely by elected volunteers drawn from the Hispanic populations. Since 2003 our office has been located in donated space at Christ Church's Parish Hall. CCH's elected Board of Directors meets regularly to plan activities, consider problems, direct personnel, and address short and long-term concerns.


Our Mission is to work towards the educational, social, and economic development of the Hispanic community in Oyster Bay, East Norwich and surrounding areas.

We achieve our mission through various programs which include:  An after-school program for K-8, A Youth Group, English as a Second Language Classes for Adults, Mundo Artesanal-Friendly Piñatas, Community Integration Time Exchange (CITE), and Outreach and Advocacy services. We also offer various volunteer opportunities for students and adults.
