CAPS volunteers are a diverse group of community members committed to the safety and wellbeing of Long Island’s children. They come from all different backgrounds and professions but share one thing in common – a desire to make a difference in kids’ lives. Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization, and without them, our work would not be possible.
If you have an interest in child safety, like to work with kids, and have spare time during school hours, consider training to become a Volunteer Presenter of our student prevention through education programs.
Perhaps you’d prefer to help out in our office as a Volunteer Office Assistant on a wide variety of administrative and computer projects.
Or help us fund raise by volunteering at our events or create a fundraiser for CAPS on your own.
Whichever path you choose, your efforts and generosity of self will be greatly valued and appreciated and help us continue our important work of keeping every child safe from harm!
Please call us, Monday through Friday, between 9AM to 4PM, at 516-621-0552 ext. 305 if you are interested in volunteering and want to learn more.
Volunteer Voice Newsletter
Our monthly volunteer newsletter shares upcoming trainings and events, tips for presenting, and relevant research and information on the various topics we cover in our classroom programs.
Our Annual Fall Training is a special two-day event with speakers from outside agencies presenting current and relevant information on issues of child abuse, the Internet, the law, etc. as they relate to our work with the Long Island community.
Periodically during the school year, we invite volunteers to attend a meeting here at CAPS, where a special topic is discussed, or a guest speaker is invited to present to our group.
A Holiday Luncheon in December allows volunteers to gather informally and get to know one another better. A Volunteer Recognition Luncheon in June allows us to express our great appreciation to active volunteers who have presented programs regularly throughout the school year, or assisted us in the office.
