CCC partners with Title-1 schools and organizations serving children experiencing hardship to provide community Celebrations. As CCC’s mid-size programs, Celebrations utilize a freestyle format allowing participants to explore each station at their own pace and provide a perfect mix of structured activities and unstructured play. Teen volunteers run each activity station, as well as interact freely with participants while they enjoy activities that could include scooter racing, giant Jenga, board games, LEGO-building, and more.
At a Celebration the volunteer-to-guest ratio is purposefully smaller, inviting a more laid-back and relaxed atmosphere where pick-up games like dodgeball or balloon-sword fighting may organically take place. This low-key dynamic creates an opportunity for teens and children to make real connections and discover similarities.
Common to all of CCC’s programs, participants receive meals, books, and Smile Bags containing personal care items, and enjoy sports activities, games, arts and crafts, STEAM projects and so much more.
