Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Cappies, is a program through which high school theatre, English, and journalism students are trained as critics, attend and submit written reviews for shows at other schools in their local districts, and then get published in major news outlets. Specifically, low-income area students are directly targeted for outreach to publicly show high school students performing positive acts in their local communities, rather than only shine the light on negative incidents that occur. We provide college letters to all critics for submission with their applications. The program was created post 1999 Columbine tragedy in which only negative actions were depicted by teen children. Our goal is to continually show the good that children are capable of without adult prompting of good will.
