The object of the Community Outreach element is to place local CAP units in the forefront of their community to communicate a drug-free message to youngsters. Cadets and unit members partner with base and local community coalitions to support anti-drug activities. Together, they provide essential and supplemental assistance to community outreach activities. Check within your local community at law enforcement agencies, schools, etc. for ways in which you can assist with, not only formal drug-free campaigns, but other community events as well. The following is a very incomplete list of different events and outlets in which you can work within your community:
|MILITARY YOUTH AND TEEN PROGRAMS||DRUG FREE ORGANIZATIONS|
|D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education)||DFAF (Drug Free America Foundation, Inc.)|
|D.E.A. (Drug Enforcement Administration)||Above the Influence|
|DEFY (Drug Education for Youth)||M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)|
|Too Smart to Start||SAMHSA - Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services|

Q: How can I request Cadet Ken or order catalog supplies for a recruiting booth?
A: Unfortunately, due to funding constraints, the Cadet Ken program is on hold and we're no longer able to provide promotional DDR materials as described in some existing training materials.
