Students in the program join one of two tracks: The regular track for students who are new to CCL and the accelerated track for those who have experience with CCL. Students in the regular track spend a semester learning about CCL, advocacy methods, and organizing. Students who do the regular track can apply for one credit from their school for completing the program. They are automatically enrolled in the accelerated track following successful completion of the program.
