Since 1977, the Chicago Area Alternative Education League (CAAEL), a not-for profit organization, has dedicated itself to providing innovative, therapeutic educational and athletic programs for High-Risk Youth. CAAEL believes that, with strong support and encouragement, each of these children, so at risk of dropping out of school, can be motivated to achieve their full potential. CAAEL programs are designed to keep students in school, develop successful school-to-work skills, and offer positive alternatives to drugs, gangs, and other dangerous and/or criminal activity. CAAEL works with educators, communities, families, volunteers, corporations, and private organizations to strategically plan, implement, and fund its mission.
