With many years of working with under-served youth and communities CCIA has identified that too many of our youth are suffering from what we describe as a Love-Deficiency. The main ingredient of our programming and instructional techniques is Love. Every action is administered from that approach. We notice via evaluations and when asked verbally, our youth articulate a plethora of things they have learned but the most consistent response is that they continue to come to CCIA’s programs because of the Love.
