- Who We Are
The Value in You (VIY) – Pathways to Financial Literacy is a life skills training program for Hartford youth ages 14 – 18 years old. This summer program provides the youth and their families with tools to become self-confident and self-aware about themselves and their community. The program’s goals include improving educational achievement, learning entrepreneurial concepts, instilling an understanding of the benefit of literacy in the marketing place, and teaching essential life skills alongside basic community values and ethics.
The VIY project (previously known as ANT) was initially developed by staff member Anthony Griffin, who joined CCC in 2012. For seven years Mr. Griffin used lessons learned to modify and improve the project each succeeding year. CCC has now brought the VIY project to its group of programs and projects.
