"We keep this night fun and fresh," says Deputy Executive Director for the CCC Daniel Bonnet. "We have a great mix of program alumni, faculty, counselors, community supporters - you name it. Our student ambassadors come to help. There's a real CCC team spirit. This year, we're also adding the honorees, all of whom have shown a tremendous commitment to helping the young people who are part of our program."
The Back to School Bash benefits the Center for College & Careers (CCC), a program of The Guidance Center of Westchester. Each year, the works with close to 500 young people (ages 13-25), transforming their lives and their futures.
The high school based program takes place within Mount Vernon High School and New Rochelle High School. The center-based programs works with young people who want to earn an equivalency diploma. You can read more about the CCC here.
