About the SEYM Child Abuse Prevention Program (C.A.P.P.)

Thanks to our staff of SEYM CAPP-registered, dedicated volunteers, we are able to have a Youth Program that offers our young people a full schedule of fun, creative, and enriching activities at our gatherings!

Our SEYM Youth Program is organized and operates according to the Southeastern Yearly Meeting Child Abuse Prevent Training Manual & Procedures. The Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP) ensures that everyone, children, parents, Youth Program Workers, and Youth Program Coordinators alike, can feel safe and free to focus on having a wonderful time at our events.

Our CAPP training is designed to give our Youth Program Workers the tools, support and empowerment to create a caring space where each child can explore their creativity, playfulness, feelings and ideas, and learn what it is to be a Friend.
