Creating Connected Communities’ (CCC) mission is to bring life-enhancing programs to children in need by empowering teens to become engaged community leaders and volunteers. CCC’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) engages a select group of Jewish teen volunteers in meaningful and direct community service by teaching critical 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
