Child Abuse Prevention Services seeks volunteers for classroom programs

The Island Now

Child Abuse Prevention Services, Long Island’s leading volunteer organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and bullying, is looking for concerned individuals to present their acclaimed classroom programs on bullying, Internet safety and child abuse prevention to students in the coming school year.

“The demand for CAPS workshops continues to grow, so it is urgent that we find more volunteers to join our mission of working together to keep every child safe from harm,” said Alane Fagin, executive director. “We can do something to prevent child abuse and bullying! We know that students who are exposed to prevention education early and throughout their school years are better prepared to respond when faced with a difficult situation.”

Comprehensive training is provided to prospective volunteers to present CAPS workshops in schools across Long Island.

Training sessions for new volunteers for the upcoming school year are being scheduled for this August and September.
