The mission of the C5 Youth Foundation of Texas is to change the odds for high-potential youth, inspiring them to pursue personal success and preparing them for leadership roles in college, work, and their communities. C5 engages middle and high school students from under-resourced communities in five years of intensive leadership experiences, including year-round leadership development programs, signature summer activities, community action, and preparation for continuing education and career development.
Volunteer opportunities with C5 range from participating in community service with C5 youth to assisting with administrative duties to reviewing applications to interviewing potential C5 Texas youth. Policies for screening and training volunteers are based on the nature of volunteer’s contact with C5 youth and the extent to which they are supervised by C5 Texas staff while with the youth. Minimum age requirements for volunteers may apply based on the opportunity.
