FCA Webinar: Engaging Youth in Civic Health- CAPE (Community Action Projects for the Environment) UF-IFAS
Community Action Projects for the Environment (CAPE) helps youth learn more about civic practice and local environmental issues, CAPE is designed for 4-H clubs and has been used effectively by teachers and leaders of clubs, (ages 11 to 18).
Civic engagement is the process of learning about governance and civic life. CAPE provides youth with an opportunity to practice civic engagement with support of the club or school and leader/educator. This is an ideal blend to strengthen youth skills, provide youth with a voice, and enable youth to make a difference in their community. The program guides youth through the process of brainstorming, exploring, developing, implementing, and reflecting on a project that addresses a community environmental issue and results in asking a decision maker to make changes
