Founded in 1989, CAW’s mission is to help youth rise above their circumstances to reach their fullest potential – both academically and socially. CAW provides after-school, out-of-school, and summer programs for “typical” and “at-risk” youth in the areas of prevention, intervention, and academic enhancement. CAW consistently achieves some of Miami-Dade’s best results among at-risk youth:
93% of formerly delinquent youth completing CAW’s prevention program do not commit another offense at least 1 year post-program, the lowest recidivism rate in Miami-Dade County.
90% of youth who complete CAW’s reading enhancement program improve in reading by at least 1 level after 18 weeks of instruction, which is five times the improvement rate in reading of Miami-Dade children overall.
CAW’s work was selected by The Florida Department of Education to implement a 21st Century Community Learning Center at two of the most challenged High Schools in Miami-Dade County. As we are an established model for academic enhancement, prevention and intervention, we are poised to receive your tax-deductible donations and look forward to adding you to our "Donor Network" Please contact us for more information if required.
