Community Consulting Teams, Atlanta
Community Consulting Teams—Atlanta was founded in Boston in 1990, and expanded to Atlanta in 1996. From modest beginnings, CCT today undertakes 15-25 projects each year, staffed by more than 100 volunteers from around metro Atlanta. Cumulatively since 1996, CCT has helped more than 175 nonprofit organizations.
CCT is endorsed by the Atlanta Business School Alliance (ABSA), an alliance of 17 Atlanta-area MBA alumni clubs from the top graduate business schools in the country. Many of our volunteers are graduates of ABSA member schools. CCT has also developed a strong relationship with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, and local foundations. Through this relationship, we are able to make the nonprofit community more aware of the service we provide, and identify attractive projects.
CCT has historically been funded exclusively by the committee of eight to ten volunteers who organize CCT, though we are in the early stages of trying to identify grant funding to ensure the organization’s continuity and growth. Current plans are for CCT to undertake 25 projects this year, and even more projects in succeeding years. Besides the current chapters in Atlanta and Boston, the national CCT program envisions creating several additional chapters in the next few years.
