Make a difference in the lives of New York City’s children
Every fall since 1962, concerned citizens just like you have taken CCC’s Community Leadership Course (CLC). This course gives you a firsthand look at how programs across New York City help children and how you can make New York City an even better place to be a child.
- Meet once a week in the fall for 10 weeks to learn about the challenges New York City children face and the innovative solutions being developed to help them.
- Visit programs that serve children and families in all five boroughs.
- Hear directly from program directors and government agency staff about the challenges they face and the successes they have had running programs for children.
- Engage in dynamic discussions about how to improve the lives of New York City children.
- Learn about advocacy in the areas CCC focuses on, including child poverty, child welfare, juvenile justice, family homelessness, education, and youth services.
- Find out why your voice is important and how you and your network of friends and colleagues can make a difference for children.
