The Community Classroom Consortium (CCC) is a coalition of more than thirty cultural, scientific, natural history, and civic organizations in north Florida and south Georgia that provide educational experiences and resources to the public, especially K-12 teachers and students. CCC was established in 1989 through a grant from the Smithsonian Institution’s “Regional Workshop Program.” In 1995, the Consortium became a 501 ©(3) nonprofit organization with bylaws and an elected board of directors.
