Objective: To transform victims into survivor, thrivers and ultimately champions by educating and empowering youth, young women and men, as well as the LGBTQ community, with a variety of ways on how to live a sustainable lifestyle.
Why: By discovering a identity and purpose, struggling individuals are prevented from falling in the cracks of society and becoming victims of human trafficking and sexual violence.
LATN is our 5 semester (3-12 month) educational curriculum created by Dr. Brook Parker-Bello of Youthiasm® founder of More Too Life, Inc. which we consider as a key aspect of our victim service framework model. The purpose of this is not only to foster a survivor mentality, but also to create leaders with a higher purpose who will have a positive impact on society, with an emphasis on a victim’s emotional shift on any kind of childhood violence or trauma being their fault to being a survivor champion. We have identified that most of our mentees come from fatherless, neglected and/or abusive homes and are searching for acceptance even before being trafficked, as a part of prevention. Our five semesters go through personal development, worldviews on human trafficking and sexual violence, early warning signs and prevention methods, internet safety and integrity with exposure to the world through technology, leadership, identity discovery, cultural influences, de-collateralizing from gang or pimp culture, and the necessary skills to enter a new life. The overall goal is to educate and empower youth and young adults with ways they can live a happy and sustainable lifestyle. This program is in different formats starting with ages 10-18, and then 18 and up. It can be modified from 12 months to 1-3 months for focused, engaging education for youth that are court-appointed, moving away or need short, yet efficient, prevention.
Objective: To educate youth on the importance of digital integrity and internet safety as it relates to human trafficking, misconduct, healthy relationship boundaries.
Why: With the growing complexity of the Internet and its many components youth need to learn how to stay safe and respond to the dangers that are circulating on social media and the world-wide web.
The LATN DI2 – Digital Integrity & Intelligence education is a pull-out from the complete LATNä curriculum which focuses on prevention and awareness set against the backdrop of digital integrity and the urgency of internet safety as it is related to the root causes of being a victim of abuse, exploitation, bullying, and gang association. It also provides an understanding of the internet as a powerful tool that reduces global borders, promotes gender respect and equality, and introduces net neutrality, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, the six degrees of information, and the future of work. It consists of four 1-hour interactive sessions geared towards reaching students and youth of varying ages and learning styles. We teach on healthy relationships, identity discovery, goal setting, STEAM education, all while stressing the means of informed decision-making, prevention for substance abuse, sexual assault and misconduct, teen pregnancy and STDs, as it relates to human trafficking in the 21st century. Each of the 4 pars incorporates a multimedia presentation that is utilized in a diverse group of settings such as classrooms, assemblies, small groups, or by grade. The course is altered depending upon age.
