Programs offered to schools and community groups with a three prong approach which includes workshops for staff, parents and students:

  • CAP for Early Childhood, Elementary, Teen, Special Needs Students
  • CAP’s Bullying Prevention Program
  • “Cyber-Empowerment” – about cyber-bullying and safety

Programs only offered to adults:

  • “Recognizing and Responding to Sexual Behavior of Children”

The Hunterdon County CAP Team is comprised of dedicated, caring, professional child advocates. Many are parents themselves and they share the belief that “All Children Deserve to Be Safe, Strong and Free!” Knowledge is power. The more we know as adults the more we can help empower our children to recognize and deal with potentially dangerous situations.

Since 1985, 100% of the public schools in Hunterdon County have received CAP Programming. The following districts have implemented CAP in the last 5 years; many implementing CAP as a maintenance program each year:

  • Bethlehem Township
  • Califon Borough
  • Clinton Township
  • Delaware Township
  • Franklin Township
  • Frenchtown Borough
  • High Bridge Borough
  • Holland Township
  • Milford Borough
  • Immaculate Conception School
  • Norwescap ~ Flemington Head Start
  • Tewksbury Township

Comments made by school staff after CAP implementation in their district:

  • “The CAP facilitators did a wonderful job speaking to our students about things we normally don’t talk about. They did a better job than I could have done myself!”
  • A school administrator wrote, “I received a letter today from my daughters’ school that they will participate in the CAP program with their kindergarten class. (in a different district) I was very happy to see that my own children will be able to participate in this program as well. Excellent job!”
  • “Thank you for your presentation. I learned things myself that I really hadn’t thought about before. I will share with my own children.”
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.
