Participants gain access to individuals working to solve the Cape’s most pressing issues. Students are encouraged to think about their role in creating solutions to local and regional challenges. CLI alumni include local and state politicians, business and nonprofit leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, health care professionals and members of the media.
