Program Overview

The C5 Leaders program for teens in Grades 8-12 empowers students to be:

  • Character-Driven
  • Community-Focused
  • Challenge-Ready
  • College/Career-Bound
  • Committed To a Better Future

Over the course of five years, the C5 leaders participate in both summer camp as well as year round activities as the students refine and practice their leadership skills as they immerse themselves in experimental learning contexts, civic engagement, and college and career exploration.   Through hands-on learning in transformative spaces, they practice and refine the essential social emotional skills required for success in high school and beyond.

The C5 Program provides teens with access to a powerful, consistent community of peers and mentors who reinforce C5 values, model personal agency and serve as inspiration for the future.   Leaders immerse themselves in:

  • Outdoor Challenges
  • Community Service Projects
  • Tour College Campus
  • Pathway Events
  • Postsecondary Planning Activities
