A shocking headline, yes, but a reality right here in our section of Fairfax County. No, the victims have not been kidnapped and brought in elsewhere, nor are they migrants or low income residents of the County. The victims are our own children, who live right here with us every day but feel alone, unloved, or misunderstood by parents and peers caught up in the hustle and bustle of life in Tysons and Northern Virginia. Tysons Interfaith is undertaking an effort to make Tysons residents, employees, and businesses aware of this scourge among us. The Tysons Interfaith effort will include information on how to recognize victims, actions to protect victims, and how to alert authorities. For more information about this threat and how our children might be approached, please visit: www.justaskprevention.com
As soon as we secure classroom space we will begin offering ESL instruction. We will be using the ESLIM model which was developed and is used by a group of Christian churches in the greater DC area, but intended for use among all cultures and faith groups.
