CCC’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) engages a select group of Jewish teen volunteers (between 8th-11th grade) in meaningful and hands-on community outreach. Together, they plan and implement monthly life-enhancing programs that serve thousands of children and families in need alongside hundreds of teen volunteers. In LDP, teens will learn valuable leadership skills including:

  • Philanthropy through a Jewish lens
  • Issue education on homelessness and the cycle of poverty
  • Empathetic volunteerism
  • Partnership building
  • Identifying community needs
  • Project management
  • Event planning
  • Public speaking
  • Fundraising
