About Gloucester/Salem County CAP:

The New Jersey CAP program has been implemented in 100% of the school districts in Gloucester and Salem Counties. In addition to work provided under the grant, many districts have chosen to remain committed to the CAP program and therefore fund a maintenance program yearly. Gloucester/Salem CAP facilitators are dedicated to empowering the children they reach to be Safe, Strong and Free!!!!

“I have received nothing but positive comments from staff – particularly regarding how well the program equips our students with skills to protect themselves.” Administrator
“I feel that the student workshops gave me more information/knowledge on recognizing and addressing future cases of child assault or neglect.” Teacher

“The CAP staff encouraged the students to participate and treated each response as important as the next.” Teacher

 

NJ CAP is located at the Educational Resource Center, and is a RTC of the International Center for Assault Prevention. It partners with state, national and worldwide prevention advocates.
