All rural counties in California have the opportunity to implement the PROTECT program in their schools for one year through a grant that was provided to 3Strands Global Foundation by the Rural County Representatives of California. If you are from a rural county and would like hear from a PROTECT Regional Director, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PROTECT program encompasses professional development training for school personnel and lesson plans for students that address positive school climates, absenteeism, and opportunities for family and community engagement. For specific information about how to integrate the PROTECT program into your district or county office of education (COE) LCAP, please click here.
The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) Program is administered by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and provides information to support awareness, identification, and prevention education of commercial sexual exploitation of children. Funding opportunities are available to all counties in the state and the latest allocation for 2017-18 is reflected here. For additional information, please visit CDE’s CSEC Website.
