The 2019 Cape Youth Force Committee is composed of students at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School who are interested in making the community a better place by supporting projects that positively affect teens on Cape Cod.
The Cape Youth Force is a program of The Cape Cod Foundation and Barnstable County UMass Extension/4H. This program was originally started with funding from Massachusetts Environmental Trust, and now is funded by local contributions, the Community Fund for Young People and the Fund for Youth Activities, both funds of The Cape Cod Foundation.
Priorities for 2019 include projects and programs that:
Support rehabilitation and recovery from substance abuse
Support services that provide year-round recreation and entertainment for youth
Support for and education about mental health, depression and suicide prevention issues
