Teens tackle large-scale service projects ranging from public art installations, staffing community events, creating social campaigns, and engaging in environmental stewardship. After teens work together on a project, they are treated to a pizza party or an adventure. The program focus is primarily small regional activities, but CAA has recently expanded to include Ultimate Adventures.
Pairing social responsibility with fun can achieve striking results. Providing opportunities for teens to engage with Community Action Programs helps build the next generation of community leaders, and creates a culture of passionate concern for the greater good.
