"I think it's important for us as a society to remember that the youth within juvenile justice systems are, most of the time, youths who simply haven't had the right mentors and supporters around them-because of circumstances beyond their control."
Q'orianka Kilcher, Actor & Activist
Organizations and Programs WE LOVE:
"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future."
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 - 1945)
Giving our young global citizens 'Voice', and really listening to what they are saying, is the way to empowerment, growth, and leadership.
The Co-Creation Community's focus on Youth Catalysts, and especially on 'marginalized' youth--those not on the mainstream path--is probably the most important work that we do. By partnering with organizations serving these youth, The Co-Creation Community and our partners, can provide additional opportunities to learn skills for 'Self-building', 'Business-building', 'Success-Building'.
The CCC Champions each have passion to "build youth for the future" and years of experience, as well as established and proven programs to mentor and support.
We envision the Youth Catalysts growing into Catalysts, who transition to Champions, becoming leaders with viable contributions and businesses of their own, and who become supporters and mentors to the next generation of Youth Catalysts.
