“The program more than met the staff’s expectation. Our parents loved the CAP Workshop! The CAP staff was extremely professional in conduct and experts in delivery of service. Their support is extremely helpful and appreciated. After CAP, we have had reduced suspensions. Our students are talking and sharing their feelings more and the teachers are listening.” – Jersey City Administrator

“The class today was fabulous!! The CAP Facilitators did a wonderful job facilitating and providing the key information and tools to our counselors. The presentation was very impactful and empowered our counselors on how to work with children who have exhibited bullying behavior.  It was well done! Thanks you!” – Hoboken Administrator
