C5 Association


The Association of C5 Youth Programs (“Association”) is a collaboration of the independent C5 Youth programs in the United States. The Association, an independent 501 (c) (3) provides the framework for these affiliated sites to work together for the benefit of the whole and for the youth they serve. The Association supports system learning through the sharing of data and best practices, develops program enhancements as needed to achieve our objectives for youth, provides senior staff training and manages the C5 Bridges Experience (3rd summer experience) for all sites. Additionally, the Association conducts national fundraising efforts and provides opportunities to reduce affiliate expenses through shared services generating economies of scale.
