“CAPE’s mission to engage students, inspire teachers, and demonstrate impact through arts integrations in Chicago speaks to me on a personal level. Growing up in Upstate New York in the 90s, I was a beneficiary of the tireless work of individuals in the non-profit space. The out-of-school programs I was a part of – such as the YMCA, 15-Love, and Odyssey of the Mind – ignited my passion for learning in ways that conventional schooling did not. CAPE provides a similar opportunity right here in Chicago to help kids who might have trouble connecting to coursework in a traditional way. Providing that spark to kids and giving them the small push that they need to excel is one of the best feelings in the world. CAPE does just that and so much more.
Being on the CAPE board gives me an opportunity to work with like-minded individuals who are committed to making the world a better place for future generations. The events of the last year, both through the COVID-19 epidemic that ravaged Black and Brown communities and the racial justice reckoning we faced collectively as a nation, have made it clearer than ever that the opportunities that CAPE provides children are invaluable.”
