Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS), Long Island’s leading organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect, is looking for concerned adults to volunteer to present our acclaimed in-classroom programs on bullying, Internet safety, and child abuse to students in Nassau and Suffolk counties. These prevention-through-education programs are offered to in schools throughout Long Island at no cost.
“The demand for CAPS workshops is unprecedented so it is critical that we find more volunteers to join us in our mission of working together to keep every child safe from harm,” said Alane Fagin, Executive Director. CAPS anticipates receiving more than 1,700 program requests from schools during the upcoming academic year. At our current volunteer level, we’ll only be able to accommodate about 1,200.”
Qualified individuals are provided free professional training at CAPS’ Roslyn office, to prepare to become Volunteer Presenters for workshops on bully prevention, child abuse and neglect, Internet safety, sexual harassment awareness and prevention, and date rape prevention. Volunteers may choose the programs they would like to present as well as the grade level.
Anyone interested in becoming a CAPS volunteer is urged to call 516-621-0552 x104 or email email@example.com.
