Cablevision’s Optimum Community initiative (which includes the program formerly known as Power to Learn) continues to impress, with a wide range of programs and initiatives designed to engage local communities in the tri-state region of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

It also recognizes several recognition months and holidays, including Hispanic Heritage Month, Black History Month and more. Cablevision also works with programming sponsors to cultivate numerous contests, scholarships, reading programs, educational screenings and volunteer programs.
