To better support children with self-care skills and knowledge, YWCA will be presenting the Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP) and Teen Empowerment Program (TEP) presentations to our students the week of September 24, 2018. The Child Abuse Prevention Program presentations is for students in grades Kindergarten, 2, 4 and 5, and discuss the topics of bullying and sexual abuse. In addition, we discuss tools for safety such as: self-assertion, peer support, and telling a trusted adult if there is trouble. Our goal is to teach young people in an engaging and age-appropriate way to recognize, resist, and report abuse. The Teen Empowerment Program presentations, for students in the 6th grade, discuss the topics of bullying, sexual harassment, teen dating violence, and tools for staying safe in an age-appropriate manner. The goal is to teach teens in an engaging and age-appropriate way to identify and respond to bullying, harassment, and abuse. Students must have a parent permission form signed in order to participate.
