TESTIMONIALS

“The ICE Program” has brought huge changes in my son’s life; good grades, leadership skills, good moral and socially as well.  DuCAP ICE is really changing our children into better leaders in the community.”  Charles A.

“My daughter has been coming to Mariachi Matters since the 8th grade and I have participated in her relationship building.  Community Programs like this one keep children and parents involved and invested in their education so that they have a bright future ahead.” Normarel G.

“DuCAP  at Marain Park Community Center has positively impacted me and my family because I have learned new life skills and have improved my grades.” Marian M.

“The Mentoring Club at Highpoint has given me ways to cope with problems.  I feel supported there and it helps me deal with family problems.” Anonymous.

“When my son started going to Choices his attitude has changed and he is more interested in school work and he is happier.  He said ‘my favorite days are Monday and Wednesday because I get to go to Choices.'” Linda D.

“What I like about Builders Club is that I get to help people that don’t have anything and I take all the time I have to be a better citizen to everybody.  Builders Club is helping me become a much better person.” Rich P.

“The DuCAP Choices program rocks!  Just look at our PBIS data. When BJW first started the program, our behavioral data showed positive results immediately.  Not only does the program provide support for our neediest students…. it also supports their families.  I adore how the DuCAP program focuses on Character Counts and all the components of being a good citizen.” Kathy W.
