The Needham Community Council Child Assault Prevention Program (CAP) seeks volunteers for the 2015-2016 School Year. The next training begins on October 17th.
Needham CAP volunteers present approximately 60 workshops in first, third and fifth grade classrooms. Working in teams of three, volunteers teach children that they have the right to be Safe, Strong and Free with their friends and peers, when they meet adult strangers, and with those who are trusted to take care of them. Using simple and age-appropriate language, volunteer leaders address bullying, stranger safety, and sexual assault by known persons.
Community members who are interested in volunteering for CAP will be given free training and work in teams in the classroom. CAP volunteers need no previous experience, and include parents of preschool and school-aged children, empty-nesters, professionals and retirees who are interested in child safety. We are looking for people who can make a one school year commitment (October –May), and are available to contribute four –six hours per month during the school day. 19 Continuing Education Credits available for MSW’s.
