TAP (Teen Awareness Projects)
TEEN AWARENESS PROJECTS (TAP)
There is an assault on teens and children today by sinister persons whose sole interest is personal profit and pleasure. The U.S. State Dept. estimates that between 100,000-300,000 American children become victims of human trafficking and/or sexual exploitation annually! The average age of a child forced into the sex industry is 12! While stronger laws and better enforcement are important, probably the best weapon we have to protect our sons, daughters and grandchildren is prevention through heightened awareness of the scope, severity, and potential danger of this problem.
Concerned parents, teachers, youth workers, and community leaders should maximize every tool available to inform and equip America’s children with the knowledge that could very well save them from the nightmare of sexual slavery and potentially save their lives.
OPERATION FREEDOM has initiated TAP (Teen Awareness Projects) to reach hundreds of thousands of young people with a warning message regarding human trafficking. This summer we have partnered with many summer camps who will utilize a portion of camp week to make a presentation and facilitate discussion on this topic. These presentations include two specially created videos and breakout session discussion guides, plus awareness wristbands as a conversation starter and reminder of the issue.
These materials are also available for local youth organizations and youth groups. If your camp or group is interested in including this presentation, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Operation Freedom will also be presented in Middle, Junior High, High School, and College assemblies beginning this fall. School assemblies are another great way to perform a valuable public service for your community as well as raising awareness of human trafficking among teens and young adults. Many schools are searching for relevant, practical subjects of vital importance to children’s health and well-being. Operation Freedom provides just such an opportunity. In addition to the above mentioned materials, a downloadable lesson plan will soon be available from our Resource Center that will assist a speaker to make an educated and interesting presentation at their community schools.
