UPLIFT! EDUCATE! AWAKE! Protect Us Kids Foundation needs your help!

We are currently researching the behavioral and socioeconomic factors involved in how technology is used to support cyber-related crime against at-risk youth. The associated cyber-related tools and exploitative methods used, typically result in catastrophic consequences - many of which encourage runaways, promote human trafficking and slavery, ensnare youth in child pornography rings and lead to the prostitution, kidnapping, abduction and murder of young people. Our focus is to provide youth from underserved and rural communities, with critical life-saving tools on how to navigate cyberspace without falling victim to child predators and exploiters.

Your involvement is so important. Get involved!

Let's empower our youth and spread awareness for international child protection on the Internet and advocate against cyber-related crimes against children! With your gift of volunteering, we can develop the tools, technology, youth safe havens and provide the much needed resources to underserved communities around the world.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to protect youth from being victimized by predators who leverage cyberspace as an international exploitation tactic. We accomplish this by promoting widespread awareness; educating youth about the dangers of cybercrime and providing them with methods of protection; stimulating the development of technology-driven safety solutions; and establishing strategic partnerships with other organizations to identify key indicators that lead to exploitation. While our overall goal is to protect all youth, we have a special interest in those living in underserved and rural areas who may be more vulnerable to predatory maneuvers.
