Collectively, CCDC employees bring over six decades of professional experience working with youth and families in a culturally responsive and trauma-sensitive manner. In both public and private sectors, locally, nationally, and internationally our work has supported youth/ families and organizations to develop their skill sets with an increased understanding of culture, equity, and the impact of our life experiences on our ability as human beings to soar.
We strive to empower those we serve with research-based tools and trainings to enhance their unique abilities and reframe their lived experiences to find their own internal, personal power, healing, and growth. In addition to employees’ published works in the areas of youth healing in foster care, domestic violence curricula, restorative justice, and personal empowerment, our organization provides research-based training opportunities specific to the areas of: cultural competency, gender equity/ sexual harassment, intercultural development (IDI), adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and community healing/ resiliency, restorative justice practices.
