CAP is designed to provide opportunities to youth from diverse neighbourhoods and develop social cohesion and interaction among young people through cricket. CAP uses cricket as a vehicle to reach out to youth by giving them a sense of hope, increased self-esteem and opportunities to become positive role models in our communities.
The program provides young Toronto cricketers with leadership and communications skills and the opportunity to travel to overseas and learn life lessons as ambassadors of Toronto. CAP aims to develop these young Toronto ambassadors as youth role models in our communities.
