In our dedication to combating crimes against children, we have chosen an outstanding curriculum called the Empower Youth Program from iEmpathize. At the heart of our curriculum is the concept of empathy, an active response to the suffering of others, and a characteristic that our culture is in great need of cultivating. Few of us are completely apathetic (choosing to disregard another’s suffering), but many of us get stuck in sympathy (feeling badly for the suffering of others). Empathy (understanding and actively engaging another’s suffering) is the solution to issues of exploitation, from familiar forms, such as bullying at school, to more extreme acts like human trafficking.

By inspiring students to develop empathy for those around them, our curriculum distinguishes itself as an exploitation awareness tool as well as a character education program with far reaching transformative potential for your school, classroom, or youth programs. The purpose of the Empower Youth Program, therefore, is to empower students with strategies to stay safe from exploitation.

Intended for youth ages 12 and up, each 25 minute lesson includes optional extension activities increasing to 60 minute programs.

Program Features:

  • Flexibly designed for many youth-serving environments, including schools, juvenile corrections environments, after-school programs, individual counseling sessions, and more.
  • Five lesson units comprised of two short films per lesson, discussion questions, learning activities, and assessment options.
  • Supplemental Friendly: The program can be integrated into existing curricula or existing initiatives. It aligns with national standards in Health Education, Counseling, and Common Core (Language Arts and Social Studies).
  • The most impactful feature of the program is its teen showcase. Rather than featuring adults, the media content is led by youth who speak from their experiences of learning to navigate vulnerability.

Public Policy

Lighthouse for Life Public Policy Objective:

Protect vulnerable populations from the trauma, exploitation, degradation and humiliation of commercial sex, by making South Carolina a hostile environment for sex buyers, pimps and traffickers through the following actions:

  1. Educate the public that sex buyers are the root cause of sex trafficking and prostitution and build community intolerance against this practice.
  2. Encourage law enforcement to aggressively work both solicitation (purchasing sex) and trafficking in persons crimes.
  3. Advocate for amendments to the criminal code to increase deterrence for sex buyers and strengthen the tools available to Law Enforcement and the Judiciary.
  4. Advocate for Human Trafficking Continuing Legal Education (CLE) training for Judiciary, Prosecutors and Law Enforcement.

Seeking volunteers interested in working on this objective. Must have intense desire to learn at both the academic and street level. Able to stay motivated over a period of years in the face of: repeated rejection, failure, unreturned phone calls, too busy to bother and unwillingness to change. Will not be deterred by heavy investment in time and energy with little or no meaningful results.

The Director of Public Policy for Lighthouse for Life is Bob Healy. If you would like to join this team, please contact Bob at
