Teens are a high risk population for violence and abuse because they are twice as likely as an adult to be a victim of a violent crime and they are exposed to more violence than any other segment of our population. The TeenCAP program offers strategies to prevent this violence. It is designed for adolescents, and presented by a male and female facilitator in three 40-45 minute classroom periods.
Workshops are held in individual classrooms. The programs include discussion of personal safety rights, types of assaults and effective strategies for handling many potentially dangerous situations. Young men and women are separated on the second and third days to foster a more comfortable environment for the discussion of issues of bullying, harassment, and sexual assault.
