What is the Child Advancement Project?
The Child Advancement Project (CAP) matches adult volunteers from the community with children in Bozeman and Big Sky Public Schools.
These mentors work one-on-one with students in grades preK-12 to provide support and encouragement. Mentors help students discover and build upon their individual strengths, and affirm students' ability to shape their own futures.
CAP mentors are screened, trained and supervised by professional CAP Coordinators, establishing a community of volunteers who are engaged in the local school system and invested in the future of their community.
Each year, over 500 community members spend an hour a week working towards a common cause: helping local kids in the Gallatin Valley reach their full potential.
