AWARENESS PRESENTATIONS CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR AUDIENCE

The average age of entry into commercial sexual exploitation is roughly 12 to 14 years old. While the most frequently reported age of entry into the life was 15, one in six participants reported being trafficked before the age of 12.

-THORN, “Survivor Insights: The Role of Technology in Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking” 2018

Sex trafficking is a hot media topic with viral stories of attempted kidnappings in parking lots and missing person reports. But what if the wider danger is more devious and camouflaged? 

Traffickers are intentionally targeting young youth by building trusting relationships through online forums (THORN). With this generation being the primary target for child sex trafficking, we believe that teens and the safe adults in their lives should be a top priority for awareness messages. Young people cannot stay safe from something they know nothing about. 

With a combined experience of 25+ years fighting human trafficking, our curriculum developers have collaborated with researchers, survivors and content experts to develop high-energy, multi-media and interactive awareness presentations.

Book us for an age-appropriate youth presentation, or an informative awareness training for parents/professionals who work with students.

  • Do you do presentations outside of schools?
    Yes, we do! We happily provide youth presentations in schools, as well as youth groups and other youth organizations (ex: Girl Scouts, Boys & Girls Club, Arizona’s Children Association, etc.). We also provide parents and professionals who work with students trainings on child sex trafficking and how to keep youth safe. For more info on these types of presentations, check out the categories on our registration page.
  • How much class time do RLR programs take up?
    Various factors play into the length of RLR's programs. Ideally in-person presentations last 50-90 minutes per topic, and our new Digital Program averages 20 minutes minimum per topic. Details can be sorted out for your specific situation after your request is submitted.
  • Have parents ever complained about a RLR program?
    To our knowledge, no parent has made formal complaints surrounding our programs or activities on school campuses, youth groups or other youth programs. Parents that experience a parent training from us respond by asking how they can get us into their child's school / classes.
  • What if a youth discloses trafficking or abuse?
    If a student discloses a situation of ongoing abuse or trafficking, school staff are required to follow through with their mandatory reporting. If a trafficking situations has been disclosed, then the Student Resource Officer should be involved in the situation immediately as well as the National Human Trafficking Hotline Number called: 888-3737-888.
  • What topics does RLR cover?
    The 5 main topics we cover are: - The Basics of Sex Trafficking - Mental Health & Resilience - Healthy Relationships - Demand Prevention & the Harms of Porn For a more details, check out the breakdown in our Program Overview here.
  • Is Red Light Rebellion faith-based?
    Yes! We are a faith-based nonprofit. The reason we do what we do is because we love Jesus and want to live out the calling he has made on our lives to fight sex trafficking. We love presenting in churches and being asked questions about our faith because we get to dive into why we are passionate about justice and the hope we have in the face of such evil. When presenting in public schools, we recognize our limitations and do no preach faith in any presentation. We follow the same guidelines as set up for teachers in this regard.
  • When I put in a request, does that register me and lock in my spot?
    Requesting presentation dates does not mean that your spot is locked in. We will contact you after your request is submitted, confirm all details, and make sure it's a go.
  • What age are RLR's youth programs appropriate for?
    All youth programs are age-appropriate for 7th-12th graders, unless noted otherwise.
  • What happens after I submit my request?
    When filling out your request, give as much detail to your ideal situation as possible. Once it is submitted, our team will review your request and reach out to you via email in follow-up. Sometimes that follow-up includes modifications to the request like: dates, topics, length of the presentation, etc. If there is a cost associated with your request, that will be discussed in this follow-up as well, which can all happen via email or zoom. After all the details are agreed to, you will receive an official Confirmation Email outlining all those details so that they are easy to find in one place. This might even include things like permission slips, media files for marketing, etc. From the time you receive the Confirmation Email to the time your program begins, you will also get automated messages with reminders necessary to your event (i.e. reminders for teachers to send out permission slips, onboarding trainings for the Digital Program, reminders to post advertisements online for community events, etc.). We try to prepare you with everything you need and walk you through the process every step of the way.
  • Are youth presentations triggering for someone who has experienced trauma?
    Emotional triggers are very dependent on each individual. For 99.9% of youth we present to from all types of backgrounds, our programs are not only “not triggering” but empowering. We receive messages from students frequently thanking us for providing a message that finally shows them that they are more than the bad things in their stories. Even though it is rare for a student to be overwhelmed by a presentation, we preface each presentation by letting students know that if they do feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable at any point, they are free to let their teacher know to be excused. Typically these students are then directed to an on-campus social worker and parents are notified.
  • Do youth presentations address sex ed?
    RLR presentations do NOT address, educate on, or discuss sex or sex education. Sex trafficking typically happens in the context of relationships (traffickers pretending to be romantic partners, friends and business professionals), which means that our programs center around healthy relationships, true stories, research and resilience.
  • Do classroom presentations need permission slips?
    That is determined by the policies of the school, district and local legislation. We provide customizable permission forms that makes the process simple and easy for school staff should permission slips need to be used.
  • What does a school need to do in order to prepare for in-person classroom presentations?
    When doing classroom presentations, the only things we need are the room, a projector and a screen (or TV with HDMI connection). The rest we bring ourselves, which includes a computer, speakers and subwoofer.
  • How much do classroom presentations cost?
    For in-person: Nada! We get AMAZING donors to cover presentation costs The only time we charge is if there is travel cost associated, in which case cost varies (depending on how many days of presentations are scheduled) but you are only charged what it takes to make the trip happen. Typically if our presenters are traveling 60+ minutes, you will be charged for travel, lodging and food. Traveling situations and fees are handled on a case-by-case basis so feel free to reach out for an initial request/estimate: info@redlightrebellion.org. RLR headquarters is based in Phoenix, Arizona. Our Digital Program will have an associated cost, tbd.
  • Outside of availability, what else is considered when booking in-person classroom presentations?
    A LOT goes into booking presentations, especially when our calendar starts to fill up for the school year. Any type of alternative schedule (whether for study halls, announcements, early releases, assemblies, etc.) greatly impacts our program. Each topic we cover and presentation we give is prepared in advance to take up the full class period (50 minutes minimum). A 5-10 minute deviation causes great ripple effects in content delivery, videos and activities planned for the lesson. Here are some SCHEDULING PRO-TIPS we have for you to consider when booking with us: Check ALL calendars (yours, the schools, and the districts): when scheduling, avoid half days, alternative schedules, holidays, etc. Ideally each presentation needs a full 55-60 minutes. Less than 50 is a huge challenge for our presenters. Please communicate any unavoidable alternative schedules asap. Consider set up time: We need a minimum of 30 minutes set up time in the room we will be presenting in. Our PA system is cool but running cables safely takes time. Give the neighbors a heads up! We bump music the first few & last few minutes of classes, and during activities/videos. It is strategic in taking students through a powerful experience. Let neighboring teachers know that it will be a little loud for a couple minutes at a time.
  • Ya'll are dope! Are these presentations loud?
    No one actually asks this question, but you should know that we bump some tunes (school appropriate) when we hang with students. We definitely show our PA system (two speakers & a subwoofer) some love. This is not because we are rambunctious millennials trying to be cool; there is actually a lot of method behind the madness. Our presentations are not lectures, they are experiences. Students are taken through a roller coaster of emotions as they take in important life lessons and learn information to keep themselves and their friends safe. We tell a story of justice that involves a lot of energy, multi-media, group activities and individual participation. After conducting well over 1,000 presentations to nearly 100,000 students, we have discovered that music is a powerful vehicle to make the program more effective. So warn your neighboring teachers that for the first and last minute of class, as well as an occasional 2 minute video, your room will be a bit louder than normal. But don’t worry, we are relevant and effect as well as respectful. There are only 1-3 times during a lesson (which varies depending on the presentation) when the volume is turned up, usually only for a video.
  • How much class time do classroom presentations take?
    Various factors play into the length of RLR's programs, including what package is being requested. Our basic package takes up a minimum of 50 minutes of each class period receiving the program; whereas, our full package can take up a whole week of instruction time. Specifics are sorted out for every individual request that is submitted. Submit your request with your most ideal situation and we will do our best to accommodate.
  • How much does the Digital Program cost?
    This is dependent on the package and will be quoted after a request is submitted.
  • What all is considered when booking the Digital Program?
    We created the Digital Program to easily fit into any type of bell schedule a school might have. Being digital, it is also much easier for teachers to schedule for whenever it best works within their teaching schedule. But there are a few things to keep in mind as we consider how soon we can schedule the Digital Program: Time for onboarding: The Digital Program requires every teacher to complete a 30 minute onboard training training before delivering the program. Time for prep: Within the Digital Program, we give teachers a master to-do list with simple steps to take in preparation for delivering the program (ex: send out permission slips, test the videos, etc.). These should take less than an hour total. Time for troubleshooting: Links within the Digital Program may or may not get flagged by a school's / district's firewalls. The program should be scheduled enough in advance to ensure adequate time to test videos and resolve any firewall issues should they come up. Time for district approval: If your district requires the Digital Program to be submitted for approval before a teacher can use it, the program will not be officially scheduled until that process is complete.
  • How much class time does the Digital Program take up?
    Each teacher determines the length of the presentation based on how many topics are in the package they choose, and how many optional modules they choose to do with their students as well. The minimum package will take about 25-30 minutes to complete.
  • Does the Digital Program need permission slips?
    That is determined by the policies of the school, district and local legislation. We provide customizable permission forms that makes the process simple and easy for school staff should permission slips need to be used.
  • What does the school/teacher need to provide for the Digital Program?
    The only thing teachers will need is a screen to project pre-recorded videos onto, as well as accompanying speakers that will be loud enough for the whole room to hear. We provide all the content, including interactive activities and Q&A. Teachers simply follow the lesson outlines to facilitate the program.
  • Can I insert an image, video, or gif in my FAQ?
    Yes. To add media follow these steps: 1. Enter the app’s Settings 2. Click on the “Manage FAQs” button 3. Select the question you would like to add media to 4. When editing your answer click on the camera, video, or GIF icon 5. Add media from your library.
  • How do I add a new question & answer?
    To add a new FAQ follow these steps: 1. Click “Manage FAQs” button 2. From your site’s dashboard you can add, edit and manage all your questions and answers 3. Each question and answer should be added to a category 4. Save and publish.
  • How do I edit or remove the “FAQ” title?
    You can edit the title from the Settings tab in the app. If you don’t want to display the title, simply disable the Title under “Info to Display”.
  • Do student presentations require permission slips?
    We provide custom opt-out forms to all the schools we work with to use at their discretion based on their unique policies and state laws. These are easily adjusted to opt-in if your school or district requires it.
  • What is an FAQ section?
    An FAQ section can be used to quickly answer common questions about you or your business, such as “Where do you ship to?”, “What are your opening hours?” or “How can I book a service?” It’s a great way to help people navigate your site and can even boost your site’s SEO.
