All proceeds from 2nd Annual East Side Festival are to go toward the event as well as funding both S.T.A.R.S. and Team Da Shop future programming in human trafficking and bullying awareness.
S.T.A.R.S. along with Team Da Shop’s vision is to empower our youth and teach them skills to help with their future. S.T.A.R.S. is a unique Crisis Prevention and Intervention Center, for sexually exploited individuals as Team Da Shop leans towards the awareness of bulling within our youth today and how to help prevent. It is also our goal to offer a nurturing, secure environment for our at risk population. Our goal is to help exploited children re-enter mainstream society and increase community awareness of this severe issue.
