Our first goal at 10.18 is to prevent child abuse and exploitation by educating adults to safeguard and protect the children in their lives. At the same time, we must not negate the need to be ready to identify and stop child abuse of all forms —to respond immediately, appropriately, and effectively.
Identify and Stop Child Exploitation
To correctly identify and stop child abuse requires knowledge that most citizens do not have. Our vision is to equip at least 1% of the U.S. adult population with this essential life-changing information before it is needed! Because early detection and action are essential to reducing a child’s suffering.
Don’t wait till a Child Tells
Since most children internalize and blame themselves for their abuse—two-thirds of victims never disclose what is happening to them. It is vitally essential for caring adults to be able to recognize the subtle warning signs and engage before a child says something.
Foster Care Is a Tool Not a Solution
Foster care is in constant crisis, yet it only provides protective care to 3% of the 8 million reported victims. Reports confirm a horrific reality, child exploitation in the United States is so immense that government programs cannot meet the need.
SAFEGUARD & PROTECT KIDS THRU
Our identification training came from victims’ heartfelt pleas to teach adults to protect children. To provide practical skills on how to identify subtle indicators and provide early detection.
Our exclusive identification training came from thousands of hours of collaboration with experts, frontline professionals, and victims. Now our citizens, regardless of skill level, can learn to recognize behavior patterns and subtle indicators like trained professionals.
