The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center
Every child grows up in a healthy, safe world free from exploitation and/or abduction.
Educating families and communities to prevent the exploitation of children.
Values - we believe:
It’s a kid’s job to be a kid and it’s the adult’s job to protect all kids.
That every adult should see every child as someone who may need their help and protection.
The word “willingly” as in "the child went willingly" should not be used in the same sentence with the words “children or teens”
