Child Assault Prevention session scheduled for May

The Office of Safe Environment for Children, Youth and Adults announces a CAP (Child Assault Prevention) session in May.

CAP is the safe environment training program for adults who have regular contact with minors. Attendance is required in order to comply with the USCCB’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. The policy of the diocese is that adults will attend CAP once every five years.

CAP 1 teaches attendees to recognize child abuse and neglect and how to report to the proper authorities. Adults are taught that children have the right to be safe, strong and free. CAP 1 is for new volunteers and employees.

CAP 2 is No More Bullies, No More Victims and is a workshop on bullying awareness and bullying prevention. Cyberbullying is also addressed.

Both sessions are 90 minutes.

Adults must attend CAP 1 before attending CAP 2. After five years, adults have the option of attending CAP 1 again if they prefer.

The following session will be offered in May:

CAP Phase 1

Tuesday, May 24, 7 p.m., St. Rita Parish, Bellmawr (Mary, Mother of the Church site)

CAP Phase 2 – Bullying Prevention

None scheduled

No CAP sessions will be held in June, July and August.
