YCAP’s goal is to cultivate extraordinary teen leaders empowered with the skills to live healthy and productive lives and to transform their food system and communities. The program enables youth to farm, cook, break bread, communicate, and activate change together, directly impacting their experience of place and relationships within the food system – as well as their taste buds, health, sense of community, and ability to succeed. YCAP includes three tracks; click below to explore each of the opportunities.

YCAP is designed to engage opportunity youth and young adults in Louisville, ages 16-21, with emphasis on residents of south, west, and central Louisville.

See examples of the crew’s work, including a food access zine and a Photo Voice project.
