Program Description

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

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

Program Goals

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