College-Community Partnerships

CCAP’s focus in the community is to extend the learning environment for K-12 students. CCAP works in partnership with schools and community-based organizations like yours to build their capacity to provide deeper, more meaningful learning through models of best practices in arts learning for children and youth.

Children and youth involved in our CCAP programs have demonstrated improved artistic/creative skills, a better understanding and appreciation of the arts, and greater social/emotional well-being. They are more engaged in school and motivated to learn, demonstrate higher academic performance, and improve their higher order thinking skills. Ready to partner with us?

Get Involved with CCAP

CCAP does work in a variety of ways. Our programs reach many audiences/populations, and participants span assorted education levels. CCAP taps the skills and experiences of partners and brokers meaningful, reciprocal relationships in order to implement model practices around arts and media education and teaching artistry.
