What We Do
Protect Us Kids Foundation is currently researching the behavioral and socioeconomic factors involved in how technology is used to support cyber-related crime against at-risk youth. The associated cyber-related tools and exploitative methods used, typically result in catastrophic consequences – many of which encourage runaways, promote human trafficking and slavery, ensnare youth in child pornography rings and lead to the prostitution, kidnapping, abduction and murder of young people. Our focus is to provide youth from underserved and rural communities, with critical life-saving tools on how to navigate cyberspace without falling victim to child predators and exploiters.

New technologies are facilitating the online sexual exploitation of children, including the live-streaming of sexual abuse of children using web cameras or cell phones, often for profit. Mobile devices also provide new and evolving means by which offenders sexually abuse children as apps are being used to target, recruit, and coerce children to engage in sexual activity.*
Protect Us Kids Foundation is working to establish strategic partnerships with other national and international organizations and NGOs towards addressing the online sexual exploitation of children. It is our hope, through information sharing and collaboration, that we can further our efforts towards helping youth who reside in underserved and rural communities by providing a different lens as to the behavioral and socioeconomic factors unique to this population and their susceptibility to online sexual exploitation.
