Cap The Gaps

CAP the Gaps is a youth-led project focused on policy change in education, mental health, substance abuse prevention, and juvenile justice. Youth leaders will map out their community to learn what resources are available, conduct a community assessment, collaborate with other youth including incarcerated youth, identify needed changes, create videos for community awareness, and ultimately propose changes to decision-makers. Youth will create social norms around honest conversations and peaceful discourse and utilize Restorative Practices to promote healing and repair relationships between youth and communities, empowering young people to thrive.
