Did you know the average entry age into prostitution in Canada is 12-14 years old? This is, by definition, exploitation of children. Bringing our prevention program to schools is of the utmost importance so that we can get this critical information into the hands of students, teachers, administration, youth mentors and parents. ⠀ ⠀ If you have a young person in high school or middle school and would like a JSF team member to make a presentation, please email
