Here at CAPE, we host a wide range of programs and events related to prevention of and recovery from substance use disorder in our community.

  • If you or someone you know has been affected by substance use disorder (addiction), especially if you’ve been a victim of an accident involving impaired driving, you can volunteer to be a speaker for our Victim Impact Panel (VIP) or Teen Driving programs.
  • If you live in the Southern Dutchess area and would like to be involved in local prevention initiatives or to bring community resources or concerns to the table, you can become a member of the SDCC and attend our monthly meetings.
  • If you enjoy working with kids and have an interest in the Marathon Project (an after school running program for at-risk youth that encourages goal-setting and aims to reduce risk factors for childhood obesity, school dropout, and substance use) you may be eligible to become a mentor for the program.
  • If your availability is limited but you would still like to lend a hand to a good cause, you can volunteer to help out at one of our events. We have yearly events (like our Marathon Project’s Color Blast Run or the SDCC’s Youth Rally) and monthly events (like assisting with the registration process at our VIP program).
