We the American People
are the solution & catalyst for change
Child exploitation is one of the most significant public issues our society faces today. The time to take action is now! As reports have continued to climb by more than 50%, some experts still project that nearly two-thirds of victims’ abuse is unreported, and an estimated 15 million children are exploited annually in the United States. The need is significant, but the solution is simple…
We Empower Our Citizens to Be Part of the Solution
Join the mass movement of adults around the nation who are gaining the knowledge & skills needed to protect children! As a result, we can make a societal shift in the familial cycle of abuse and produce long-term impact and positive outcomes for children.
We need only 1% of adults in the United States to join the movement, and every child in America can have someone looking out for them!
Our approach is unconventional because the need is too big and too urgent to become another child welfare organization that settles within the constraints of our current broken system. These children’s lives depend on our innovative and dedicated action, and we will not fail them.
YOU CAN BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION
What You Can Do
What We Do
Our mission is to empower adults to prevent and respond to child exploitation with Christ-centered justice, accomplished by providing three core service programs. That educate, train, and aid with a child-centered focus. As a result, we become a catalyst for change inside and outside systematic structures.
We prevent exploitation by educating the public on the evidence-based reality of child exploitation in the United States and training our citizens to recognize behavior patterns in both victims and perpetrators.
Moreover, 10.18’s goal is to stop all forms of child exploitation from happening in the first place. Our prevention training was born out of the expressed request by victims for us to teach caring adults to protect the children around them. Consequently, we can produce better outcomes for children by preventing harm from ever occurring.
We respond to child exploitation by training adults not to dismiss nudges, no matter where the concerns stem. Prevention is ideal, but we must be ready to recognize the subtle signs—and respond immediately and appropriately.
Moreover, 10.18 is here to aid families on the frontlines in the realities of fighting for children who are at-risk or endangered. We provide training and guidance on advocating amid complex systems and situations. Consequently, we can increase the impact on endangered children’s lives by improving early detection and effective action.
