SafeTalk is an age-appropriate empowerment and prevention program that utilizes interactive discussion and role plays to teach children, grades K - 5, that they have the right to be "safe, strong and free." Using the internationally recognized curriculum of the Child Assault Prevention Program, volunteers present the program FREE to schools in Fairfield County, CT. Workshops are presented one classroom at a time and are approximately 60 minutes long.
SafeTalk volunteers undergo a complete two-day training that teaches all aspects of the program and prepares them to go into the classroom, give a a scripted presentation and meet with students one-on-one at the end of each session to reinforce concepts, answer questions, and occasionally assist with disclosures of abuse, neglect and other issues.
Schedule: Perfect for stay at home parents because SafeTalk is presented during the school year Mondays - Thursdays between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm.
Commitment forVolunteers: We request at least one hour per week commitment
Location: SafeTalk is presented throughout lower Fairfield County, CT in schools, camps and after-school programs.
Our Ideal Candidate: Reliable and outgoing who are comfortable presenting short role plays in front of a classroom (20 - 30 students on average). Prior experience with children or in the human services field is a plus, though not a requirement.
Requirements and Training: An interview, two-day training and background checks are required. All volunteers must have access to a car as many of the schools we serve are not near public transportation.
