Cristo Community Development Corporation

Cristo Community Development Corporation is a non-profit 501c3 organization that has many programs that promote broad based participation in the arts, cultural activities and is committed to improving the academic performance of our youth. The Young Men and Women Achieving Success Program located in the Hampton Roads area of Va., serves as a model for anyone sincerely interested in making a difference in the lives of our youth. Throughout the year, we  have served 70 young men and women ages 11 through 18 years old.

 

Many of our teens have been recommended to the program because they lack interpersonal relationship skills, have need of tutoring, they have behavior problems and need tools to develop life skills.


Sites are located in Chesapeake, Virginia in area middle schools, community and educational centers.


Our program serves as an innovative forum for educational advancement, leadership development, cultural exposure, and technical assistance to youth within our surrounding communities. Young Men and Women Achieving Success is a weekly mentoring program starting in August through June (Fall/Spring), and summer programs are from June through August.
