The Child Assault Prevention (CAP) Training Center uses volunteers and interns who want to give back to their community or make a difference that will last a lifetime. These volunteers assist program staff in implementing child abuse and violence prevention workshops in the community teaching children and youth strategies and skills to prevent all forms of child abuse and assault.
Workshops take place primarily during school hours on weekdays in Alameda County schools, after school programs, faith communities, shelters and other organizations serving youth. All volunteers go through an initial 40-hour training which includes an overview of child abuse and neglect, crisis counseling skills, classroom management skills, and prevention strategies. A minimum commitment of 4 hours per week for a 12 month period is required.
We also accept undergraduate and graduate level practicum students and trainees who are looking to gain professional skills or complete hours for their training program. Initial and ongoing clinical training is provided and the hourly commitment varies depending on the practicum student’s program, and the commitment is through the middle of June.
