Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rock, Walworth and Jefferson counties recently launched a new program to benefit youth who have been victims of human trafficking, according to a news release.
The E3 Program, which stands for encourage, empower and energize, will offer weekly 90-minute mentoring sessions to those in need of support. It will begin in Rock County and eventually could expand throughout the state, according to the release.
The program was developed in partnership with the Janesville School District and Janesville Police Department. It received financial support from the Women’s Fund of the Stateline Community Foundation and the Beloit Junior Women’s Club, according to the release.
