University Community Collaborative

The University Community Collaborative (UCC) prepares and supports young people on their journeys to become confident, effective civic-minded leaders. Engaging approximately 130 youths per year (ages 14-24), UCC’s programming is distinguished by its emphasis on long-term development, its incorporation of youth leaders into the collaborative’s organizational structure, its social justice/community building orientation and its location on a university campus.
