CCC’s GOAL programs are designed to utilize Games, engagement Opportunities, craft & sports Activities, and Learning support to provide more 1:1 experiences for our teen volunteers and the students at our partner organizations. GOAL Programs utilize the buddy model by pairing each participant with a teen volunteer for the duration of the program. This model gives our teens the chance to build one-on-one connections and interact with each child based on their own needs or interests.
GOAL programs provide an intimate atmosphere and an opportunity for real conversation as children enjoy the activities. From picture frame making to scooter racing, to board games and photo booth fun, each GOAL Program also includes learning support and academic-focused activities like homework help, tutoring, reading together, or practicing skills like counting.
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.
