CCCC is in collaboration with the SF Foster Grandparent Program, which helps children learn to read, provides one-on-one tutoring, and guides children at a critical time in their lives. Put simply, they give the kind of comfort and love that sets a child on the path toward a successful future. In addition, this intergenerational assistance is respected and adds a family flavor to the program. CCCC usually has 3-4 grandparents present on a daily basis.
SUMMER YOUTH EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM STAFF AND SELECTED VOLUNTEERS
Youth between the ages 14-21, who are residents of the City and income-eligible, are provided career and educational services and work experiences/training. They receive services that include: employment/work readiness, career exploration and guidance, occupational skills training, tutoring/computer training, college preparation/leadership, counseling/mentoring and alternative high school services.
SPECIALISTS / CONSULTANTS / OUTSIDE RESOURCES
CCCC has partnerships with various local organizations who assist us with the development of children, parental needs, as well as enrichment activities for our school.
Although a significant percentage of the CCCC’s operating costs are covered by state and federal childcare grants, the Center relies heavily on other funding sources, such as private donations and fundraisers, to keep the Center in operation. Our ongoing annual challenge is to fundraise over 20% of the annual operating expenses, excluding any capital improvements – much of this is raised at our annual Spring Gala at the end of March
