My Life My Choice
My Life My Choice (MLMC) prevention groups teach at-risk girls how to recognize and avoid the recruitment tactics of pimps and find a path out of exploitation if they are already involved. The groups are designed to change girls’ attitudes and perceptions of the commercial sex industry, as well as build self-esteem and personal empowerment.
MLMC empowers youth to protect themselves from the commercial sex industry and its perpetrators. Using the strength and power of the collective voices of survivors and their peers, girls not only receive important preventive education, but learn to see themselves as agents of change.
The My Life My Choice curriculum includes ten-session prevention groups for girls ages 12 to 18. LSS facilitates these groups primarily in school settings.
