Cultural Academy for Excellence (CAFE)


CAFE is a 501c3 youth-based S.T.R.E.A.M program in Prince George’s County that uses the performing arts as the catalyst to develop the passion and discipline for learning, leadership and academic achievement.

CAFE started in 1996 “to enhance the academic, social and leadership skills; and provide an alternative to negative behaviors through the performing arts.” Over the years,CAFE has helped over 1,000 students in the DMV with culturally-based enrichment activities facilitated by professional musicians and teachers.

CAFE's steelpan program is considered to be one of the most comprehensive percussion and music theory programs on the East Coast. The highly acclaimed, award winning “Positive Vibrations Youth Steel Orchestra” has performed nationally and internationally, and most recently graced the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center (Aug. 3, 2017).
