Community Services

BARCC’s Community Awareness and Prevention Services (CAPS) program presents educational programs and works with communities to increase understanding of the realities of sexual assault and rape.  We raise public awareness and work with communities to prevent sexual violence. Speakers are either BARCC staff or community volunteers. Speakers from BARCC’s Survivor Speakers Bureau also are available to go into the community to share their personal experiences with sexual violence—including reflections on the incident, the aftermath, and the road to recovery.

CAPS staff and volunteers conduct over 250 educational programs and informational tablings each year.  Find out more about becoming a BARCC volunteer community educator.

The CAPS staff have particular expertise in working with youth and adults who work with them; immigrant communities; college students, faculty and staff; and professional staff such as police, health-care providers, and social service agencies.
