Foundation / Corporation
New Jersey Child Assault Prevention (NJCAP)
Grants to New Jersey K-8 schools for programs to combat bullying in schools throughout the State. Funding is intended to support a series of workshops and meetings for parents, staff, and students that explore types of harassment, intervention strategies, and problem-solving strategies for students.
CAP’s Bullying Prevention Program is an initiative of New Jersey Child Assault Prevention (NJ CAP) for schools (grades K – 8) and is funded through the NJ Department of Children and Families. The most effective prevention program for any school or district is one which involves the entire school community. As such, the Child Assault Prevention (CAP) project offers a comprehensive approach to the problem of bullying in schools. The ‘CAP’s Bullying Prevention Program’ features a three-prong approach with a series of workshops for staff, parents and students. The program seeks to mobilize the school to:
- Raise awareness and identify types of bullying and harassment
- Encourage anti-bully/harassment polices
- Train adults in appropriate intervention strategies
- Improve student communication, conflict resolution, problem solving and other social skills
“CAP’s Bullying Prevention Program” is an innovative program designed for Kindergarten to 8th grade and is to be implemented in schools that have already had the Child Assault Prevention Program.
Schools will agree to have CAP County Coordinator and CAP Facilitators implement CAP’s Bullying Prevention Program according to the design of NJ CAP. For a detailed description of the meetings and workshops included in this design, see https://njcap.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/CAPs-Bullying-Prevention-Application-2019-2020-revised.pdf#page=4.
