We meet youth where they are.  We foster an environment that is fun, culturally relevant and age appropriate.


1 in 9 girls and 1 in 53 boys are sexually abused by an adult before their 18th birthday.

Common age a child enters sex trafficking, 14-16

Of 4.8M sex trafficking victims, 21% are children.


While the onus should not be on a child to protect themselves from victimization, we must educate them.  We envision a world where all youth receive the care, support and skills they need to thrive.
