Hartford Has Talent

Capital Community College, Hartford, CT

In partnership with Capital Community College and M.A.L.E.S. (Developing young men to be leaders) of Hartford, the United Village Foundation held a community event to expo the talent of our young artists.

Our youth’s health is a concern for the entire community. Each year we strive to raise funds through our talent show to support our Artists. Young people need a strong support group for their talent and understand that adults care about them and their art. Our communal families are committing to help your artists to develop healthy lifestyles. We have supported our artists in an environment where everyone is embracing and demonstrating caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The UVF has been and still is an example of hope for the youth, teens, adults, seniors, and families as a whole. With this feeling of love, young artists have increased their creativity in their community and to become positive leaders.
