Recently the list of Girl Scouts receiving national Young Women of Distinction honor was announced. One of the Girl Scouts did her Gold Award Project on Human Trafficking, creating a website, http://teensontrafficking.org/
Alexis La Benz learned about human trafficking when she worked with Honduras Girl Guides as part of a GSUSA & WAGGGS twinning project. Wanting to take what she had learned in twinning one step further Alexis built the website teensontrafficking. org. On her website she educates visitors on what human trafficking is, safety and prevention tips, and how to ensure that products you purchase are not made by slave labor. Alexis promotes her website and her knowledge about human trafficking at multiple speaking engagements. So far she has received 12,700 visits to her website.
