Our Story

Kids will know they are loved when they are protected with prevention.

Our Vision

We aim for a world where youth discover their worth, find their voice, and take bold steps to tell their story and defend themselves. Where parents and communities are equipped to protect youth and end child exploitation, so kids are free to achieve their goals and dreams.  

Our Mission

Alert adults and kids to the critical dangers of in-person and online abuse, equipping and empowering them with skills to prepare, intervene, and protect from victimization.
