You Can't Groom Me

Providing education & awareness about grooming & trafficking - empowering people to see the tactics used by groomers so that you can say "You Can't Groom Me".

Grooming tactics work most successfully when the victim is between the ages of 11 and 16, when a normal human brain is still developing. According the the National Institutes of Health, a teen’s brain is highly sensitive to pleasure and reward as the nucleus accumbens is nearly fully developed. But, the prefrontal cortex – the part of the brain that helps us make major decisions and foresee consequences – is not fully developed in most humans until their mid-twenties.


All of this means that teens are more vulnerable to flattery, attention, affection, and gifts as means of coercion. All human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion. We are on a mission to equip teens and parents to spot the signs of grooming, trafficking, sextortion & abduction risk.
