As we have shared before we firmly believe that awareness is key to prevention. The ability to recognize a victim of trafficking and exploitation. To fully understand what grooming looks like. To see the warning signs early enough to take action. To recognize that parental controls and social media checks are not enough to protect children. Only through training to youth, parents and youth workers will this happen.
Our prayer is that God would open doors to share this message. Whether that audience is schools, churches or other nonprofits that serve youth, we welcome any and all opportunities to present truth.. While there are certain youth more vulnerable, the reality is that exploitation knows know racial or socio-economic boundaries. It does not discriminate. This is a message that ALL youth need to hear, regardless of background or social status
This month we ask that you join with us in this prayer. Please pray for the right connections with school officials that will allow us entry. Pray with us for churches to be aware of who we are and what we can offer to their youth and parents. Pray for our awareness team members to be ready and willing to share when those opportunities arise. Pray that we will we see a generation of educated youth that will boldly join the fight against trafficking and exploitation.
