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 for rising 10th – 12th graders and runs from June – March each year.   Applications are open from mid March – April 30.  “Builders” in the program commit to 100 hours of community service which includes: 50 hours at a non-profit placement,  30 hours at ‘service-day’ events where ‘Builders’ volunteer together,  and 20 hours at ‘curriculum days’ where students learn about various topics such as leadership, communication and personal finance.

The 2018-19 CMCB group completed over 5700 hours of community service!
