Program Description

With continued support from the U.S. Embassy in Algiers, World Learning is working with six dynamic local partners to launch Community Connections Centers – CCC (C3s) to offer training and activities that build and promote community resilience among youth.

The C3’s portfolio of services contains four main pathways to resilience: cultural identity and connectedness; bridging personal capital; linking community capital; and non-violent-related behaviors and beliefs.

Program Goals

  • Develop students’ soft-skills and job-readiness skills and help them create an action plan for the most suitable career path;
  • Increase students’ sense of cultural pride and be more comfortable sharing their culture with others, and to help them develop trust and confidence in government and authority figures and community organizations;
  • Engage participants in community action projects and allow them to address their concerns in a constructive manner;
  • Offer a space where youth can discuss different topics and learn to express their opinions in public while improving their English language skills.
