Who we are
Connect City Heights (CCH) birthed from a concerned group of individuals who asked a simple question, "How can we create a platform so that individuals are NOT ONLY RECIPIENTS, BUT EMPOWERED to become contributing members of their community?" This idea is fueled by the opportunity to connect youth in City Heights with the rich resources available to them, mainly career professionals, so that their career dreams become a tangible reality.
o Connect students from the greater City Heights neighborhood with working professionals who are living out their career dream for a one year mentorship.
o Connect students to personal development workshops that will challenge them to look at their community through a hermeneutical lens of transformation and opportunity.
o Connect students to an opportunity to develop a capstone project that utilizes the assets from the community and addresses a need in the community.
o Connect students to college scholarships.
