Tell us about your partnerships
Foundation for Developing Compassion & Wisdom (FDCW): an international organization focused on developing training & materials for awakening wisdom & compassion. CCC is one of only three programs endorsed by FDCW.
Tara Redwood School: the CCC pilot school for implementing, developing & refining the CCC curriculum. We offer a 3 week internship program as part of the CCC Certification Course for students locally & globally.
We are expanding our program outreach! Our challenge is to gathering groups of interested participants for our teen programs.
Financial assistance: Many youths in our community struggle financially, and do need their parents to contribute. We will pilot new projects with Tara Redwood School alumni (teens & young adults) & their interested friends. Donors who wish to be a catalyst for positive social change have a myriad of opportunities to support issues and organizations. By expanding our visibility in the community, we can put our programs into community issues in need of empathic teams.
