Help Us Send our Kids to Chattanooga!
We Need to Raise $3,000

Can you imagine a childhood without ever having taken a roadtrip out of state? We want to plan a very special outing for our boys and girls. We are looking at driving up to Chattanooga for a full Saturday in early November. There is SO much to see in Chattanooga, including Ruby Falls, Rock City, the Incline Railroad, Tennessee Aquarium and IMAX. The total cost for the trip will be about $3,000 which includes $800 to charter a bus, food, and admission tickets to all the venues. You can help by making a donation online! 

CCYA's Mentor Program
Making a lifelong impact

Impacting a young person's life is one of the greatest things you can do. Think back! Did you know how to make some of the biggest decisions in your life without the help of someone important to guide you...a teacher, coach or big brother or big sister? All kids deserve to know that someone cares about them. We are launching a pilot Mentor Program with a few of our CCYA youth by matching them with community church partners and board members. It's our goal to have an established "Mentoring Program" by 2015, where every youth will be matched with a mentor. 


There will be an application process necessary in order to be a mentor. As part of that process, you will be required to supply personal and professional references and have a background check performed. In addition, you will be required to participate in a Mentor Orientation and Training Session. 


More Information will be provided as we get closer to launching this new and exciting program!
