People who do not finish high school are 3.5 times more likely to be arrested than high-school graduates. Furthermore, females who do not finish high school experience higher rates of unemployment, and are more likely to rely on public-support programs than their male peers.
If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then The SAGE Project can provide a year's worth of school supplies for 40 girls in its Life Skills for Girls program. The supplies will include a backpack full of essentials such as folders, pens, pencils, paper, and notebooks. Each additional $10 raised will be used to provide another backpack full of school supplies. The aim of providing the school supplies is to help students go to class prepared and eliminate worry about acquiring another necessity.
The SAGE Project's Life Skills for Girls program provides support services to young women involved in the probation system, who are typically aged 1317. As part of these support services, the program also helps meet young women's fundamental needs such as housing, mental-health services, and education.
Many participants in the Life Skills for Girls program have experienced or are at risk to experience trauma or sexual exploitation. Additionally, many of them are referred from in-custody counseling at SAGE's Youth Guidance Center.
The SAGE Project aims to end human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of both children and adults worldwide. Working with partners in the United States and around the globe, SAGE raises awareness about these issues through education and advocacy programs.
SAGE also helps survivors heal and start new lives through comprehensive support services, including mental-health counseling, job preparation, and case management. As many SAGE staff members have first-hand experiences with issues of prostitution, addiction, and homelessness, they provide a valuable perspective on the experience while providing a supportive, judgment-free environment for survivors, as well as women and youth still in the sex trade.
