CAPE students also participate in a Reading Program at Portsmouth Elementary School.
STEP/Teen Program
Systematic Training for Effective Parenting of Teens offers a down-to-earth and practical way to meet the challenges of raising teenagers today. It’s a group discussion program that paves the way to improved parent-teen relationships; more responsible teenage behavior in home, school, and community. It also leads to improve teenage self-esteem and self-reliance. Through video segments, and supportive group discussions, the program teaches specific parenting tools and shows how they can be applied to the many challenges faced by teenagers and their parents: peer pressure, education and career plans, sexuality, use of the car, drinking, drug use, gangs, violence, and many others.

The groups are held once per week for seven weeks. They last 1.5 hours.
