Center for Community Alternatives

About Center for Community Alternatives

The Center for Community Alternatives (CCA) is a leader in the field of community-based alternatives to incarceration. Our mission is to promote reintegrative justice and a reduced reliance on incarceration through advocacy, services and public policy development in pursuit of civil and human rights. CCA serves people in trouble: youth at risk; families in crisis; people struggling to address drug and alcohol problems and HIV and AIDS; and people who have been involved in the criminal justice system who are seeking community reintegration and productive, law-abiding lives. CCA endeavors to address these issues by emphasizing personal empowerment, self-respect and concern for one's community.

Transition Coach Assistant Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Syracuse, NY
“I enjoyed the experience and getting the chance to meet some of the students that the transition coaches help manage. Assisting in the process by sitting with students, teachers and all kinds of personnel to help the students develop a set goal and interpersonal skills for their return to school to be successful was one of my most memorable moments and I will never forget the opportunity that was given to me. ”
