The Community Alliance for Progressive Positive Action (CAPPA) has been giving kids a badly needed attachment to education and cultural enrichment for several years now.
Now, the program has a home of its own at 734 West Fourth Street in Williamsport, unveiled in ceremonies last week.
The facility offers more space for more students, with more technology and classroom areas to help kids who need roots to find their educational momentum.
Many kids today want to achieve, they just don't know how. They are born into a culture of dependency. To break that cycle, a culture that values achievement and positive socialization has to be taught. That teaching requires dedicated people who believe they can help break that cycle.
CAPPA has received national honors because of this type of person, and the program has documented results to show it is working.
