We are survivor leaders that educate and empower in our communities.
Runaway Girl, Inc. offers high quality training and technical assistance. We believe in local and are committed to local partners leading the way. Our trainings educate and connect community leaders who are making a difference.
Leading with Purpose
Survivor Leaders! Following an RG training there have been increases in the number of human trafficking investigations and outreach to victims, improved victim-centered protocols, new research, new program funding and most importantly investments in the survivor community.
We know that having strong relationships with local survivors who are active in their local communities saves lives! We stay connected through trainings, group retreats and one-to-one meet ups. Wherever we are, we make an effort to create meaningful networks with local survivors.
Runaway Girl, Inc. works with local trainers to build upon their presentation skills, knowledge, networks, and experiences to enhance every training they attend or lead. RG trainings offer access to speaking coaches, professional networks and opportunities for continuing education.
We focus on building capacity. RG’s basic training includes the A-B-C model of Awareness, Belief, and Capacity. RG Trainings go further than Awareness to challenge deeply held Beliefs and build Capacity through cooperation and collaboration.
Meet the Trainers
Runaway Girl trainers stand strong on their own, yet choose to stand together! We have our own businesses, our own interests, our own stories, and our own bright futures. We are honored to stand together as a team of strong survivors who are dedicated to improving outcomes for survivors of all forms of human trafficking!
