Who We Are

Mission

The mission of the C5 Youth Program is to inspire high-potential youth from risk-filled environments to pursue personal success, to prepare them for leadership roles in college, work and community, and to motivate them to become role models for others.

We do this by engaging middle and high school students from under resourced communities in five years of intensive leadership experiences including year-round leadership development programs, signature summer activities, community service, and preparation for continuing education and career development.


We encourage C5 youth to be…

  • Character-driven
  • Community-focused
  • Challenge-ready
  • College-bound, and
  • Committed to a better future.
