NEEDHAM COMMUNITY COUNCIL’S
CHILD ASSAULT PREVENTION PROGRAM [CAP]
In January, 2002 Caren Nemtzow presented a CAP workshop in Mr. Kascak’s [Mr. K] 5th grade class at Hillside School as a CAP volunteer. One of the students that day was Evan Cohen; fast forward to January, 2018. Caren is now the Director of Needham CAP, Ms. Cohen is now the classroom teacher, and Mr. K is now the Hillside Principal!
This year, CAP, in it’s 24th year in Needham, presented 60 workshops to 1,198 children in the Needham elementary schools; teaching them that all children have the right to be “Safe, Strong & Free”.
Thank you to the wonderful teams of trained volunteer Prevention Specialists who present CAP workshops throughout the school year, to the PTCs who help support the CAP Program and to the schools and their staff for warmly welcoming this program into their busy school days.
