CAPA offers comprehensive prevention programs to effectively educate and empower children to recognize, interrupt, and report unsafe or uncomfortable behaviors and situations. CAPA combines Play It Safe!® and Think First & Stay Safe® curricula (best practice, evidence-informed, and age-appropriate) to meet Erin’s Law standards as required by the South Carolina Code of Laws and the State Board of Education. Our program emphasizes every child’s right to stay safe from abuse, neglect, harassment, bullying, cyberbullying, and grooming using proven prevention strategies, including assertiveness, advocacy, and increasing self-efficacy. Each lesson includes take-away resources and materials in English and Spanish, so children and their families can reinforce these concepts at home.
Programs are available for youth groups, schools, community groups, and after-school programs:
Mandated Reporter is for professionals required by law to report child abuse and neglect. Through a PowerPoint presentation and handouts, participants learn about the different types of abuse and neglect and the most common signs. Participants will also learn how to handle a child’s disclosure including how to react, who to contact, and applicable law. This presentation is about one hour in length.
