WHAT WE DO

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.

We believe by providing the proper learning activities, we can prevent students from becoming addicted to harmful substances and developing negative perceptions of others.

OUR HISTORY

ABOUT

HOW WE GOT HERE

Over the past four years, over 1000 students have participated in our mini-courses, clubs and activities, and most importantly community projects. The CCSR was made possible by an unrestricted donation of $50,000 by Bloomberg Philanthropies in 2012. In 2016, the Cummings Foundation awarded the CCSR with a $100,000 (over three years) grant to continue our mission.

HOW WE GOT HERE

The CCSR has collaborated with The Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, colleges and universities, community groups such as Team Medford, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and civic and public service organizations to help make the world a better place to live. In light of all of the terrible national and worldwide tragedies, we strongly believe teaching children and adolescents how to be empathetic leaders and understand the plight of others are imperative to prevent such tragedies from happening again.

MONTHLY PODCAST

The CCSR is pleased to announce that we are launching a new monthly podcast, The Segment with Sam, hosted by senior Samuel Cluggish! The podcast goes through the month’s activities that the CCSR participated in, highlights a few key projects that happened during that month, and takes time to reflect on the monthly theme of the podcast and the CCSR.
