The YMCA Community Action Program (Y-CAP) is an evidence based program that works intensively with at risk young men and their families, enhancing their mental, educational, social and physical development and by helping them reach their fullest potential through Christ.
To truly promote the growth of youth into well rounded young men, Y-CAP will specifically focus on the goals of improving academic performance, delinquent behavior reduction, substance abuse prevention and improvement of attitudes and self esteem.
To achieve these goals, the Y-CAP curriculum includes topics that enhance character development, conflict resolution skills, decision making skills, leadership development, family relationship building and substance abuse prevention among others. All topics are presented in a fresh and relevant way that will engage youth in conversation, allow them to explore themselves in a safe, supportive environment and challenge them to make healthy, positive changes in their lives.
Y-CAP is provided free of charge for both facility members and program members thanks to the generous support of the Community Foundation, the Horseshoe Foundation and Metro United Way.
