Established in 1991, Career Concepts for Youth has presented its Stay in School and Achieve Program to tens of thousands of students in Maricopa County, Arizona schools.
Our role models and mentors from various professions enhance the program through interaction with the students. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the rewards of fulfilling careers and the success factors that lead to advancements in school and life.
CCY helps teach elementary students the building blocks to successful lives as adults, and we couldn’t do it without our extraordinary team of mentors, role models and teachers, as well as our board of directors and advisors.
