Another School Year Begins

“Another School Year Begins…”

 

Progress Report on the Implementation of

CAASE’s Prevention Programming:

 

September, 2012

 

Although high school hallways are quiet during the summer, the prevention team at the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation has stayed busy.  In addition to planning and scheduling with our school partners, the team has worked to expand the number of program offerings.  During the summer months, the prevention team created five new single-session workshops that will be offered to schools this year.  In addition, they also created a service-learning component to accompany every in-school program that CAASE offers.  Now teachers and counselors will be even better equipped to help students execute a successful service project around the information they have learned.  By providing this, CAASE expects that even more of the ideas created by students can become actions.

The efforts this summer have prepared CAASE to continue growing the program and truly empower young people to become part of the solution to sexual violence, exploitation, and trafficking.  CAASE hopes to build on last year’s success by adding at least five more schools with our programming.  By broadening our offerings, we believe we will be better able to meet this goal.

With your continued support of CAASE’s educational outreach, more and more young people are becoming aware of the problems that sexual violence and exploitation presents to their community.  As one young man said, “Prostitution is the scar on America’s face, it’s there, but you don’t talk about it.”  He went on to explain that he wanted to help others learn about this problem.  Thank you for your support of this young activist, because as awareness becomes action, violence and harm will begin to decrease.
