Option 1: Dignity Diversion
The DIGNITY Diversion program is run in conjunction with the City of Phoenix Prosecutor’s Office and gives clients who have been arrested for prostitution in Phoenix the option to complete the program as an alternative to serving jail time. DIGNITY Diversion focuses on support, education and treatment to end the life of prostitution, as well as job placement assistance. DIGNITY Diversion also provides a program for johns arrested for prostitution to help them understand and appreciate the harm that they cause to women.
This fieldtrip to the Diversion headquarters will expose students to the reality of prostitution, especially how girls as young as 11 & 13 are drawn into it and then forced to stay. It will include a conversation with a Sgt. from the Vice Enforcement squad of the Phoenix Police Department who will share with the students about his work.
Option 2: Teen Maze 2012
Teen Maze is a fun, interactive experience to help teens realize the potential consequences of the choices they make concerning issues such as sexual activity, technology and substance use. The maze also explores career and education opportunities. Teens navigate the maze through Fiesta Mall by drawing cards, rolling die and spinning wheels to indicate their choices and then discover the consequences.
Envision a life-size game and you get the idea.
