The first semester of the 2012-13 school year has been filled with exciting new developments for the prevention education efforts of the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation. The team has continued to develop new relationships with schools in Chicago that want to bring CAASE’s curriculum to its students, and has also developed partnerships with organizations in other states.
Here is a list of our accomplishments this year:
Established relationships with and presented Empowering Young Men to End Sexual Exploitation in two new schools this fall.
Established relationships with an additional five schools that will receive presentations this spring.
Established a relationship with and presented in a residential home for boys.
Continued presenting in our partner schools.
Created and started implementing Empowering Young Women to End Sexual Exploitation as a companion curriculum to our young men’s program.
Partnered with the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation to write two new curricula that are being used by teachers around the country to teach students about modern-day slavery.
Conducted a training in Indiana to teach 35 prevention educators from across the state on how to use Empowering Young Men and Empowering Young Women.
Thank you for your support of our efforts. Now young men from not only Chicago, but from across the country, are empowered and equipped to end sexual exploitation in their communities. The task is far from over, though. For every new school we work with, two more call interested in our curricula, and it requires funding in order to continue providing schools with this vital program free of charge. Government grants are evaporating and we and must rely even more on individual donors like you. Your continued support has never been more important. Thank you, and happy holidays!
