CCACE provides opportunities for lifelong learning to the citizens of the school district and surrounding towns. CCACE responds to community needs and interests, calling upon local people and organizations to develop and coordinate programs and services for children, adolescents and adults throughout the year—making schools available for extended-day educational use for Concord and Carlisle residents, and promoting and supporting school and town projects that cannot be funded or presented in traditional ways.
The Community Chest funding will provide scholarships to CCACE students. In addition, CCACE plans to launch a new “Can We Talk” series within its Adult and Continuing Education program which is aimed at facilitating respectful community discourse about issues concerning Concord and Carlisle residents. Funds from the Community Chest will support the launch of “Can We Talk”.
