CCC welcomes individuals who want to volunteer their time and skills to help us fulfill CCC’s mission. Specifically, you can participate in speed networking, host a college or career field trip, provide program and evaluation administrative support, or offer resource development support.

  • Speed Networking: You’ll go into our partner schools and talk with small groups of 3-4 students about your job, career path, and the education you needed to prepare for your position.
  • Host a College or Career Field Trip: If you are associated with a college or business, you can help host a group of students for an interactive day of learning about what college or a workplace really looks like and what happens there.
  • Help with our Programs and Evaluation: Our programs are all interactive and each workshop requires significant planning and materials. You can volunteer to help our Director of Programming prepare for workshops that will be delivered to 400 students in Wards 7 & 8 or assist with evaluation projects to help us measure our success.
  • Help CCC Raise Support: If you are a fan of CCC, we need your help meeting others who may be interested in supporting our work. You can volunteer to introduce us to potential donors, corporate sponsors, etc. or you can help with fundraising activities such as events or mailings.
