The Director's Message

Dear C5 Texas friends and supporters:

Each summer, I have the great opportunity to meet C5 leaders who are learning valuable leadership skills for future success at their schools, homes, and communities. This year, I met Savannah, a first-year leader, who could not contain her excitement as she shared her favorite memories from her first summer at camp. I later saw Sam, an alumnus whom I first met three years ago, and who has spent his last eight summers learning and leading in C5. During that visit, I was honored to recognize four other alumni who were inducted into our Decade Club for their continuous service to the mission of C5.

Some highlights from this past year include:

  • 100% of our 5th year C5 teens graduated on-time from high school
  • 98% of our C5 graduates enrolled in college
  • 10,000 community service hours volunteered by C5 Texas teens
  • 87% of the 2017 volunteers and seasonal staff were C5 Texas alumni

We are very proud of our young leaders who inspire us each day to continue working for a better future for all. We owe a great deal of our success to our C5 Texas friends and supporters, who, like you, who believe in what we are doing for our Texas teens.

Please join us in changing the odds for our C5 young leaders and attend one of our events or by making a generous donation that will ensure that each teen reaches their full potential. We at C5 Youth Foundation of Texas thank you for your support and are excited for what the future brings.
