CCA CONNECTS is a paid professional development fellowship program for undergraduate and graduate students across all disciplines to work at Bay Area mission-driven community organizations for the duration of an academic year.

Upcoming CONNECTS Event: 

Spring 2019 Professional Development for Creatives!

CONNECTS is offering a new series of interactive professional development workshops for creatives in the field! Topics include: arts education, planning & design, career development, equity & community engagement. 


Connects Fellows grow professionally through applying their critical and creative skills to help further the mission of their partner sites, while receiving professional development training from the Center at CCA.

Community organizations working with the CONNECTS Fellowship Program benefit from the assistance of CCA-funded art and design Fellows and their creative contributions, which are structured towards the organization’s unique needs. Students selected to participate in the CONNECTS Fellowship Program cultivate relevant, real-world experiences for portfolios and résumé development, professional skills, mentorship, leadership and networking opportunities.
