What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Educational Programs

The Learning Place of the Cultural Center provides classes and workshops year round in various fields including art, crafts, humanities, dance, exercise, computers, fitness and special interest. Generally classes serve the adults in the community; however, during summer months classes and camps are available for children and youth.  A music program for children and youth is now being offered and a community youth chorus is currently being developed. Approximately 1,000 classes and 150 workshops are offered each year. Every attempt is made to keep the registration fees and instructor fees as low as possible.

Population(s) Served

The Cultural Center is a place where many come to meet new friends and stay active. An array of recreational activities are offered for people of all ages. Over 20 card games are offered each week, as well as BINGO, chess and Mah Jongg. A woodturners club, a stamp corner, a woodcarvers club, a two piano group, and a dulcimer group (just to name a few) meet at the Center regularly. Dances are provided for all ages, from teens to seniors on a regular basis, and an afternoon Karaoke group keeps some oldtimers singing.

Population(s) Served

When a local non-profit hospital sold to a for-profit hospital, it closed and gave its exercise equipment to the Cultural Center, and the Center opened the Fitness Salon. The Salon operates six days each week from 6am until 7pm, Monday through Friday and from 6am until 2pm on Saturday. A personal trainer is on duty to assist clients during all hours of operation. During this year the Salon became certified for the Silver Sneakers Program, which provides free fitness memberships through some insurance programs. Theww or four times each year the Fitness Salon conducts a Weight Loss Challenge for the community.
 
In addition to the exercise programs offered through the Fitness Salon, The Learning Place offers numerous classes that are related to fitness.

Population(s) Served

The center for Arts programming at the Cultural Center is our 500 seat  Theater, which has been in operation for over forty four years and has been a major venue for local and traveling performers and organizations. It is home to several local performance groups including  Charlotte Players, Cul-Cen Productions, Charlotte County Concert Band, Charlotte County Big Band and Charlotte County Jazz Society. In addition, it serves as the venue for the Charlotte Players for their larger productions. Over 50,000 patrons attend over 200 performances at the Theater each year.
