Mission Statement

The mission is to promote peace and healing for children and youth victims/survivors of sexual exploitation, sex trafficking, and violence through the development of specialized programs, trauma-informed care, and unconditional support.

Description

The mentoring program as part of the organization is providing Mentorship, Educational, Leadership, Prevention Programs, Life Skills Training, and Support Mechanisms to help young girls between the ages of 12 and 18, particularly those in underserved and distressed communities to become more productive citizens and women of excellence and integrity.
The program has two components:
- Girls Circle is a 12-weeks informal session led by trained facilitators, who teach an evidence-based curriculum. The sessions work to correct negative behavior and focus on self-esteem, body image, substance abuse prevention, anger management, STD and teen pregnancy prevention, runaway prevention, teen homelessness, partner abuse, violence, bullying, staying and excelling in school, career development, dress for success, etiquette training, and financial literacy.
-Angel Mentoring is committed to mentoring girls who have been identified as victims of sexual assault, sexual abuse, human trafficking, and domestic violence. The Angel program addresses mentees' developmental, social, and emotional needs through strengths-based programming. Angel mentors provide basic skills and psychosocial services to reduce cognitive and behavioral impairments to restore recipients to their highest level of functioning. Services help recipients acquire constructive cognitive and behavioral skills through positive reinforcement, modeling, operant conditioning, and other techniques.
