Reducing Vulnerability

We work hard to prevent child exploitation and trafficking from ever happening.

We engage children, students, and adults with prevention messages and trainings through our Project POST curriculum, DMST trainings, and Internet Safety trainings.

Project POST (Positive Online Social Tools)

Project POST is a video series for students, created to aid in stopping sexual exploitation before it begins. It’s a free resource that includes a discussion guide and curriculum which can be used in a classroom setting. 

Project POST covers information on internet safety (i.e. chatrooms, sexting, permanence of what is placed on the internet), grooming, predators and victims, as well as training on what DMST is and how it begins. When completed, students will be able to recognize signs of sexual exploitation and DMST, and be aware of the dangers of participating in risky behavior that could lead to exploitation. 

Junior Advocate Program

Our Junior Advocate Program is a program to develop the next generation of leaders by increasing engagement in high school students with peer-to-peer training and outreach that will result in creating lifelong ambassadors to our ministry and mission. This is an 11-month program open to high school students only that will give each participant opportunities to volunteer and advocate for Street Hope TN.

Resources

Street Hope TN partners with Gabb Wireless, a company that makes a safe phone for kids.  It’s one of our most recommended products to parents because it looks like an iPhone but doesn’t have the Internet, social media, or games. Use code STREETHOPE at checkout!
