CCC’s Leadership Development Program gives Jewish teens the opportunity to participate in a 1-4 year long cohort designed to teach them how to engage hundreds of teen volunteers in programs they plan for thousands of children in need.


  • The teens in this program represent more than 20 high schools around the city.
  • Some are members of synagogues and others are unaffiliated.
  • Our teens identify with all sects of Judaism.
