CABE Secondary School | Coquitlam

CABE, which stands for Coquitlam Alternate Basic Education is a 200-student public secondary school servicing the Tri-Cities, designed for students experiencing social and behavioural issues, and its student body includes a class of teen mothers who attend regular curriculum and take parenting courses while their children are tended to in an on-site daycare.

The school makes a difference – many students who might not otherwise make it in a regular school graduate and go on to post-secondary education, training and jobs. We need to raise $27,000 this year to help the students of CABE for everything from diapers for babies in the Young Parents Program, to food, bus tickets, clothing and other necessities.
