Colonial Community Volunteer Corps (CCVC)

Mission Statement

It continues to be Colonial’s philosophy to respond to community needs by instituting innovative and effective programs to meet these needs. By utilizing community development funds to train youth as volunteers, and working closely with community leaders, a multitude of needs have been addressed. An essential component of this project continues to be for young people to work with and see adults as positive role models willing to volunteer their time to help their community.

This program is designed to increase adolescent’s awareness of their community and help them feel part of it. Our experience has been through inclusion, the natural adolescent feelings of being disenfranchised can be dramatically impacted upon. By including students in the planning and implementation of this project, we have given them a unique ownership, which they have responded to enthusiastically.
