Binghamton University’s Center City Coordination Project celebrates first anniversary
Celebrating its first anniversary this month, Binghamton University’s Center City Coordination Project (C3) will showcase the successes of its first year during an open house to be held from 1 – 4 p.m. Friday, February 18, at the C3 Community Center, located on the 3rd floor of 218-222 Water Street, Binghamton. The event is free and open to the public.
The C3 program partners Binghamton University with over 25 community agencies and organizations in a neighborhood revitalization program, targeting residents in a high priority section of the city of Binghamton, which incorporates District 7 and the southern two-thirds of District 9.
Initiated through the University’s School of Education and Human Development, C3 coordinates efforts to help the residents of the area improve their overall quality of life.
Binghamton University students, faculty and staff from a wide variety of departments and disciplines assist the program through internships, mentoring and tutoring services, service learning projects and volunteer opportunities. The center also features an information area and staff to help area residents explore community services and resources available to them.
Although the open house will not feature a formal program, guests will be able to tour the facility and meet participants and partners who will be on hand to talk about the projects in which C3 is involved. Displays will provide visual representation of the projects and guests are invited to walk through and talk with representatives.
