The Cultural Academy for Excellence (“CAFE”) is an award-winning music-based academic and life-skills enrichment program. We started in 1996 with the goal of encouraging young people to value learning and to perform well academically.
Free Minds Book Club and Writing Workshop uses books, creative writing, and a peer support system to awaken DC youth incarcerated as adults to their own potential. Through creative expression, job readiness training, and violence prevention outreach, these young poets achieve their education and career goals, and become powerful voices for change in the community.
