Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the U.S. Our teenagers and young adults are the primary target with recruitment taking place in schools, malls and social media. Human Trafficking is often a crime of psychology luring in unsuspecting victims with promises of love and easy money. That means EDUCATION is the key to keeping kids safe, parents informed and our schools and community engaged in stopping the exploitation of our young people.
The three most likely targets of human trafficking in the U.S. are:
Each year generous corporations, foundations, non-profit organizations and individuals donate resources to effect change and support their communities. The Catalyst Program is designed to invest donations where there is the greatest need; manage and monitor funding for the greatest return; and provide accountability and engagement to the donor while providing the resources to stop child sex trafficking.
Million Kids is a Pubic Benefit 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization dedicated to stopping child sex trafficking, educating kids, parents, school administrators, government officials and civic leaders to keep our kids free from predators and our communities safe. We serve as the Training and Outreach Coordinator for the Riverside County Sheriff Anti Human Trafficking Task Force. We have worked with exploited and trafficked persons and situations for many years. We operate on the ground and in the real world. We KNOW that if we can educate a young person about child sex trafficking THEY WILL LISTEN. We also understand AT RISK kids have needs.
Human trafficking is a crime where the predator lures in unsuspecting victims with false promises, coercion, force and the promise of love and easy money. These same targets are often the most vulnerable in our society.
The Catalyst Effect:
Kids in nearly every category mentioned above is at extreme risk to become a victim of human trafficking. It is not enough to educate them and tell them to be careful. We MUST remove their vulnerabilities and replace them with strength, support and personal value. Foster Kids are especially vulnerable. They have had no one to tell them they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. We utilize donor funding to meet their physical and material needs while mentoring them to find their own value and not be easy prey for predators.

Here are some examples of how we can put your donations to work:
Single Parent Households:
We also educate teens, parents, and school administrators about child sex trafficking, including how the predator identifies their target, how they groom the victim, and how to report trafficking to authorities.

This is a win-win for everyone. Together, we combat child sex trafficking, provide support and mentoring for the most at-risk kids and their families, and invest your donation where it reaps the most success. Most importantly, YOU will share in the success stories of every life YOU help to change!
