C.A.P.E. League provides year-round enrichment, serving children and teens with weekly activities, field trips, projects, classes, mentoring, and other opportunities. The mission is to provide youth with the resources, role models, self-esteem, and skills to shape them positively. The League is geared toward youth ages 11-17, from underserved communities, who may not be exposed to or cannot afford to take part in productive and diverse activities. We are an inclusive program open to all youth who wish to welcome new opportunities.
However, we mainly recruit youth classified as “at-risk” within the foster care system; have ADHD, developmental or learning challenges; are experiencing self-esteem, social or behavioral issues; or part of single parent and/or lower-income families. We aim to provide an outlet for stimulating occupation; while presenting activities that educate and enhance them beyond the classroom. Throughout membership, they are introduced to the business of entertainment and sports, as well as the performing, literary, and visual arts.
