Below is some information about ICT SOS and its history:
12 years ago, ICT SOS began as a grassroots group of committed citizens, concerned about human trafficking, meeting monthly in a coffee shop. Since that time we have experienced a ton of growth! ICT SOS currently has 5 full-time staff and 2 part-time staff and hosts multiple interns each year. In addition to middle and high school prevention curricula, ICT SOS provides training for the community, churches, foster agencies and families, law enforcement, medical personnel, and many other industries. In 2020 with the addition of our Advocacy Services program, we were able to expand the support available to survivors of trafficking and exploitation and direct service agency partners. We have relaunched our Student Advisory Board, completed our Not Alone: Exploitation Awareness film content, and moved into a larger office space.
ICT SOS acts as a liaison between the professional groups working with trafficked youth & adults, and the Wichita volunteers who seek ways to be involved in creating real and lasting change through education and prevention as well as restoration and advocacy services for survivors. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations toward this tournament are tax deductible.
