Creating Connected Communities’ mission is to provide life-enhancing programs for underserved children by empowering teen volunteers to become engaged community leaders.

Teenagers are often shut out of meaningful and interactive volunteer opportunities due to their age.  CCC provides these young people with a chance to get involved in their community and learn about social responsibility.

CCC provides over 800 community service opportunities for Atlanta’s teens each year!

We also provides a Leadership Training Program (LTP) where a select group of teens learn about non-profit work, fundraising, public speaking, project management, advocacy work, and the issues surrounding the homeless population in a year-long cohort.

  • Each year, 50-60 Jewish Atlanta teens apply to participate in a year-long Leadership Training Program and work together to plan community-wide events including a Spring Festival, Fall Festival, After School Program Events, and Amy’s Holiday Party.
  • Each cohort begins in January and ends in December. Applications for each year’s committee will be available in December for the upcoming year.
