About Creating Connected Communities
A little bit about us: Creating Connected Communities (CCC) is a local non-profit formed in 2010. CCC’s mission is to enhance the lives of children in need by empowering teens to become community leaders and volunteers. Through its signature event, Amy’s Holiday Party (in its 25th year!), and other monthly community outreach programs, CCC serves thousands of children and families in need each year and offers hundreds of teen volunteer opportunities annually. The cornerstone of CCC’s work is its Leadership Development Program, an up to 4 year-long experiential-learning program that empowers Jewish teens between 8th-12th grade to develop their Jewish identity, values, and leadership skills in a variety of impactful ways. Our program features multiple hands-on activities and projects, speakers, and small group discussions that really challenge our teens to explore tough topics and make a significant impact in their community. CCC continues to grow each year and we need an innovative and enthusiastic educator to help us meet the interest for our work!
