"C.C.A.P. isn't just telling kids what not to do – it's telling them why.  Education is the best tool that adolescents

can receive that will allow them to make responsible decisions affecting them for their lifetime."

   – Dr. Romero



"To  educate  a man in mind

          and not in  morals  is

      to educate a menace to society."

                                              -Theodore Roosevelt

Current Florida Statute mandates that schools teach CCAP's subject material!

    WHY WAIT Teen Newsletter on Abstinence Article by Julie Laipply:


    I thought Julie was so informational and really got me thinking about things. The talk only reassured my decision to be abstinence. I mean, whew! I definitely don't want a disease on top of all my other problems. I absolutely love, love, loved this talk! I recommend that all teens hear this info. -10th Grade Public High School Student, Naples, Fl.
