Teach2Reach Awarded Grant, Program Update

In October 2019, the Teach2Reach team was awarded a grant from the North Carolina Governor’s Crime Commission (GCC) to support the implementation of the Teach2Reach program and response protocol in Youth Development Centers and Residential Programs across North Carolina. Our team will be training school personnel and staff on sex trafficking and supporting youth, delivering outreach to youth, and providing crisis services and referrals to youth who disclose sex trafficking.  This funding will support the team in their work through 2021. Thank you to the GCC for their support!

Since the award, the team has been busy refining educator and social worker training materials, as well as integrating stakeholder feedback into the curriculum. Understanding that schools have varying needs and capacities, the team is also creating multiple versions of the curriculum. Schools can then choose the version which best fits the needs of their educators and students.
