Protect Us Kids Foundation provides youth from national and international, underserved and rural communities, with critical life-saving tools on how to navigate cyberspace without falling victim to child predators and exploiters. This includes, but not limited to, child protection and internet safety, cyber security awareness and education, identify human trafficking methods that have been enabled via technology, and establish strategic partnerships with other organizations to identify key technological and human indicators that lead to exploitation.
Our mission is to protect youth from being victimized by predators who leverage cyberspace as an international exploitation tactic. We accomplish this by promoting widespread awareness; educating youth about the dangers of cybercrime and providing them with methods of protection; stimulating the development of technology-driven safety solutions; and establishing strategic partnerships with other organizations to identify key indicators that lead to exploitation. While our overall goal is to protect all youth, we have a special interest in those living in underserved and rural areas who may be more vulnerable to predatory maneuvers.
In support of our mission, Protect Us Kids Foundation has the following key contributing goals:
-Promote cybersecurity awareness within the communities that we serve, to ensure that access to viable mental health, technology and cybersecurity resources are readily available at all times.
-Formally engage with humanitarian organizations, corporations, and international governments, to work collectively towards addressing the continued liability and legal challenges in human trafficking prevention in cyberspace and the effects of globalization and forced servitude.
-Support the establishment of innovative, yet ethically sound, data governance measures that serve to protect and maintain the privacy of exploited youth online.
