Center for Citizenship and Social Responsibility
The CCSR is an exemplar of what the future of education should and needs to be...it is about combining skill development with a sense of community.
Who are we?
The mission of the CCSR is to develop responsible global leaders/citizens who will be positive contributors to society and will work to combat important social issues such as global warming, addiction, prejudice, racism, pollution, gender bias, poverty, public education, healthcare, etc.
Over the past 10 years, over 2000 students have participated in our mini-courses, clubs, activities, and, most important projects – approximately six hundred students have developed projects that benefit the schools, community, and the world. At each school – high school (and alternative high school), two middle schools, and four elementary schools – a CCSR teacher-advisor guides students in developing Project-Based Learning activities, individually and in small groups of 2 or 3 students. The student(s) select a project that they believe will help others or make the community a better place to live.
