Community Character Coalition of Elk Grove


The Community Character Coalition (CCC) of Elk Grove is a not-for-profit community-based organization that was formed in September 2003.  Our vision is to create a model community where the quality of life is supported by core ethical values translated into good character practices, which are taught, promoted and recognized throughout the Elk Grove community.  Our efforts are based on the Six Pillars of Character:  trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, caring, fairness and citizenship.

We meet the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 a.m. at the Sheila Ray Adult Center, 225 E. Elk Grove Blvd. in Elk Grove Village. We welcome your attendance.
