Students help prevent abuse

I would like to thank the 65 talented Nevada Union and Forest Charter high school students (also the three Scotten and Lyman Gilmore students acting as emergency back-up puppeteers!) who participated in Child Advocates’ CAPINCS program this year.

They performed puppet shows that taught personal safety skills to over 3,000 pre-school and grade-school children in Western Nevada County. Your time and dedication to this important program do make a difference in the lives of our most vulnerable children, and your enthusiasm makes working with you a joy. I am so grateful to be part of this community where we are helping our children grow up free from abuse and neglect.
