Is your youth group motivated to take action to make their community, and their environment, better for everyone? Community Action Projects for the Environment (CAPE) helps youth learn more about local environmental issues, select one to explore, and effectively voice suggestions for change to community decision makers. CAPE is designed for 4-H clubs and has been used effectively by teachers and leaders of clubs, ages 11 to 18. The program includes activities and resources for eight meetings.
