Each year Newton CAP volunteers present approximately 120 workshops to students in kindergarten, second and fifth grades. Working in teams of 3, volunteers teach children that they have the right to be Safe, Strong and Free with 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 the topics bullying, stranger safety, and sexual assault by known persons.

  • We are looking for community members who are interested in becoming trained prevention specialists. CAP volunteers need no previous experience, and include parents of pre-schoolers and school-aged children, empty nesters, professionals and retirees who are in interested in child safety.
  • We are looking for people who can make a one school year commitment (Oct-May) and are available to contribute 4 hours per month during the school day.
  • The next training session is scheduled to begin October. 12.
