Claude Moore Community Builders

The Claude Moore Community Builders program is recognized as a valuable teen volunteer and leadership training program in the Loudoun Community. Established in 2007, with the help of a generous grant from the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, the program has encouraged civic participation for youth in Loudoun County.     CMCB engages youth in meaningful volunteer opportunities that benefit the organizations they are paired with and the greater community as a whole.

CMCB is a ten-month program running from June – March each year. Applications open on March 22, 2019 and at the end of April each year. Historically, approximately 25 youth have gone through the program each year.  “Builders” will complete: 50 hours at a non-profit placement or combination of placements,  30 hours at service-day events where we volunteer together,  and 20 hours at ‘curriculum days’ where students learn about various topics such as leadership, communication and personal finance.
