Help Amplify Sex Trafficking Prevention
Girls with Grit is participating in this year’s Amplify Austin Fundraising Campaign. Amplify Austin strives to meet the needs of our community by providing a digital marketplace that connects local donors with Austin area nonprofits all year long. Amplify Austin inspires people to make a difference in their community by connecting them with the causes they're passionate about.
The seventh annual community-wide day of giving will take place from 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28, through 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019.
Help Girls with Grit reach more Austin area teens with our free Sex Trafficking Prevention Program! Already more than 250 teens in the Austin, Bastrop, Hays and Manor Independent School Districts have benefited from the Not a Number Curriculum we offer.
We recognize that the key to keeping teens safe is to teach them how to recognize recruiting and grooming tactics. We give kids the advantage by teaching them how to spot traffickers even when they don't look like what you'd expect. We go beyond awareness. We give teens the skills to stay safe.
We educate both boys and girls (ages 12 - 18) in the Austin area. We are working to expand our capacity and our reach so that we can help more teens develop the skills and agility they need to respond in unsafe situations.
