C5 Georgia is a 501 (c) (3), that began with John Alm, the former President & CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises. John had a desire to give back and provide under-resourced youth the opportunity to have the same camp and personal development experiences that his children were fortunate enough to receive. With this in mind, John and his wife Carolyn began their mission of providing not only a camp program, but also a leadership development and life preparatory experience to those who simply had no access to such opportunities. After bringing his initial dream to reality, the C5 curriculum grew in scope from a four week summer camp to a five year, year-round leadership development and college readiness program. Today, C5 Georgia is a member of a nationwide network of youth foundations operating in Los Angeles, New England, and Texas committed to his vision.
