We educate New York City children on their right to be safe from physical and sexual abuse. Since 1986, our award-winning Child Safety Workshop has educated more than 410,000 school children on how to recognize, resist and report abuse.
For children that are experiencing abuse, this program can be the first step in getting help; and for thousands of others, it ensures understanding of their right to be safe, their right to speak up and their right to a childhood that is free from abuse.
CAPP's mission is to ensure that all children receive their basic right to safety so that they can have the opportunity to grow and thrive. Teaching children to recognize resist and report physical and sexual abuse helps to keep them safe and works to end the cycle of abuse. Each year more than 10,000 children participate in the Child Safety Workshop, approximately 100 families are referred for assistance and 50 abuse cases are reported to child protective services for further investigation.
