Robbinsville Child Assault Prevention Program

On April 18, all first-grade students in the Robbinsville school district will take part in a Child Assault Prevention Program (CAP), which is international and designed to teach children how to exercise their rights to be “safe, strong and free.”
CAP uses role-play and guided-group discussion to teach children how to recognize potentially dangerous situations and how to implement effective safety strategies.
The content of the workshops covers bullying (peer assault), assault by a stranger and sexual assault by a known individual. The program stresses communication, self-assertion, peer support, and reporting skills as practical prevention techniques.
