Bright In Blue with the Prevention Team!
April 2, 2020
by Diana Beltran, Prevention Educator
The month of April has arrived, and with it, the time to raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention (CAP). The way that we plan to engage Monterey County is by providing outreach and support for parents, caregivers, and guardians. We are transitioning a project we had planned called Bright in Blue. This project involves promoting positive relationships between caregivers and youth and promoting a positive self-image for young people.
Caregivers are encouraged to sit down with the young person in their lives and work together to come up with positive words that describe the child, or positive phrases of affirmation. Take your favorite word or phrase and spend time creating a piece of art that incorporates positive messages.
We want students to think creatively about what makes them unique and valuable. Talk to your trusted adult to participate in this project!
All other supporters:
Reflect on what you do to support positive relationships. Do you have a success story? What do you do to make the people in your life feel loved and supported? We want to hear from you!
Everyone is encouraged to participate. Blue (navy) is the color to end child abuse, so let’s get creative and find ways to incorporate blue into photos, posters, or any artwork. It’s up to all of us to spread kindness during CAPM!
Take a photo of your art and creativity using your phone and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
