The mission of the Community Connection Group of Central Illinois, Ltd. is to move Central Illinois forward in community and economic growth by fostering collaboration and connectedness between our small towns.

 Involving youth, retirees, and other adults, it creates a vibrancy to act as the catalyst to ignite this growth and once again stimulate hometown pride and ownership in our rural communities.

 Building on its agriculture roots, the Community Connection fosters cooperation between communities, leverages resources/efforts, encourages youth, inspires entrepreneurship, and works to eliminating poverty by handing up and passing forward.

 Besides offering educational activities for area children, the Community Connection offers programs to teach youth and adults - arts, crafts, light trades, foods/nutrition, gardening, construction, farming, entrepreneurship, and more!
