CAP Program

  • 4 people are interested

The Child Advancement Project (CAP) is a program of Thrive, a Bozeman-based non-profit that provides mentoring, education, and support to children and families in the Gallatin Valley. 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 K-12 to provide support and encouragement. Mentors volunteer with the same student for an hour a week, only during the school year and during school hours. Our CAP Coordinators work hard to support the match and make sure that the CAP time works with the volunteer's schedule. Mentors help students discover and build upon their individual strengths, and affirm student's 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.

Thrive's locally designed CAP program is now part of the National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices, a highly-regarded standing indicating the program's proven effectiveness in creating positive outcomes for children.

Each year, over 600 community members spend an hour a week working towards a common cause: helping local kids in the Gallatin Valley reach their full potential.

CAP mentors are adult volunteers from the community. All mentors must be 18 years old and must pass the screening process that includes a criminal records check, reference checks and an interview. Training requirements must also be completed. Mentors are college students, working-professionals, stay-at-home parents, retirees, etc.

In just one hour a week, as a Child Advancement Project (CAP) mentor you can help a child believe in themselves.
