CAPE (a Coalition of Agencies for Peer Education) seeks volunteerapplicants to be a part of one or more of these important peer education programs:

Colie’s Closet
We work to further the understanding  of depression and to prevent suicide. We want to diminish the stigma attached to depression and promote the knowledge that depression is treatable and it's okay to talk it about and get help. Meetings are Sunday afternoons. Contact Kathy Valentine at valstone2@hotmail.com or email colliescloset@comcast.net.

Peers Building Justice
Our mission is to educate middle and high school students on the issues of dating abuse, sexual assault, sexual harassment and oppression to generate dialogue among students in order to prevent interpersonal violence.
