Thank you for your interest in the Community Leadership Course (CLC). Informed New Yorkers are essential partners in CCC’s mission to ensure that every child is healthy, housed, educated and safe.
The 2023 Community Leadership Course will begin on September 13 and end on January 10. Following the 12 week course, there will be a graduation social in December, and an Advocacy 101 workshop will be held in January 2024.
The fee for the Community Leadership Course is $1,200. Partial and full scholarships are available.
The deadline to apply is April 1st. Interviews will be scheduled throughout the months of April and May for selected candidates. Final notifications of acceptance will be made in June.

Please note that the CLC is a hybrid program, with some sessions remote and some sessions in-person. While most weekly sessions will be held virtually via Zoom, we will gather in person at various points so that participants have the time and space to be in community with each other and to visit different communities throughout NYC’s five boroughs. All CLC sessions take place on Wednesdays from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM unless otherwise noted. A break for lunch is included.
*This preliminary calendar is subject to change and will be finalized by August 1st, 2023
