Who Are Mandated Reporters?

Anyone who professionally works directly or indirectly with children (teachers, tutors, instructors, administrators, volunteers, social workers, daycare workers, counselors, therapists, life coaches, clergy, parishioners, police officers, medical professionals, local, municipal, county, state, and federal employees, nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations).  Parents and the general community are also reporters.  If you see something suspicious, it is your civic duty to please report it by calling (888)373-7888 or dial 911.


As a Certified Life Coach, it is your fiduciary duty and commission as a Mandated Reporter for Child Abuse and Domestic Violence to report when it is necessary to share certain information with others and the appropriate authorities where there is indication of serious threat to health and/or safety as follows:

1. Adult and Domestic Abuse:  Having  reasonable cause to believe that an adult is in need of protective services (regarding abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment), you must report such to the local agency which provides protective services.
2. Child Abuse: Having reasonable cause, on the basis of your professional judgment, to suspect abuse of children with whom you come into contact in your professional capacity as a Certified Life Coach, you are required by law to report this to the Department of Family & Social Services or the Police. 


What is Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)?


A declaration of the World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, held in Stockholm in 1996, defined CSEC as:


 “Sexual abuse by the adult and remuneration in cash or kind to the child or a third person or persons. The child is treated as a sexual commercial object for the purposes of buying, selling, or trading sexual services globally.”


CSEC may involve coercion and violence against children and amount to forced labor and a form of contemporary slavery as well as offering the sexual services of children for compensation, financial or otherwise.


What is Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST)?


Also defined as the commercial sexual exploitation of children through buying, selling, or trading their sexual services in the United States.


Forms of CSEC and DMST include forced prostitution, pornography, stripping and other sexual and perversion acts.


What is Human Trafficking?


Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sexual act, according to Department of Homeland Security's definition.

Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world, including the United States. It is estimated that human trafficking generates many billions of dollars of profit per year, second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable form of transnational crime, according the Department of Homeland Security.

Human Traffickers are a gang of thieves.  Where do they get the girls from?


In various ways, such as the personal columns. They round up young girls who are attracted by promises of luxury, trip to a foreign country with all expenses paid, guarantee of an easy job, and then they are shipped out.  And when they land they get the low down.


Some of the children and teens are lured or snatched from public areas and from their private homes.  Some of them will work as hostesses and dancers in strip clubs if they are attractive enough. Others go into the best families as domestic servants. They’re told what to do and they do it.  If they rebel or talk, they disappear permanently.  We believe we will find many of the USA missing children and teens in South America.  Many of them are shipped to the US from Mexico, the Philippines, and Central America.


Human trafficking is a hidden crime as victims rarely come forward to seek help because of language barriers, fear of the traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement.
