Thanks to R-UTN member Teddy Emanuel for providing the following information on an organization in need of volunteers.
Founded in 1982, Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS) is Long Island’s leading non-profit resource on the prevention of child abuse and neglect, and provider of youth violence prevention and child safety education to all K-12 Nassau and Suffolk schools. CAPS offers in-classroom, developmentally appropriate, multi-media workshops. The programs are designed for small classroom settings to engage students and encourage active participation.
As a CAPS Volunteer Presenter, you can parlay your interest in bully prevention and child safety into a learning and often life-changing experience for a child…particularly one in need of help.
Training is offered to those who qualify, at the CAPS office in Roslyn.
