Global Children's Rescue: John Rode and Justin Payton

Our mission is to educate parents and children on the warning signs of human trafficking to help prevent abductions from occurring. Being aware of a potential threatening situation before it happens could mean the difference between life and death.

When photographic artist Graciela Valdes was asked what is your vision with your Pilot Light Portrait Project, she said, "It is to create an artistic movement that promotes hope through those who have overcome difficult life circumstances and experiences and now honor their personal source of strength (their Pilot Light), fully realized of their potential for greatness, while creating space to inspire hope for those who remain in the midst of their pain."

Elite is proud to present - The Pilot Light Portrait movement. It will ignite souls and facilitate a transformative photographic artistic experience that empowers and inspires, while transcending the essence of what makes us all united in our humanity.

Join us as Graciela Valdes unveils her masterpieces at Warriors of Change: Lock-Shields! Center Stage.

Elite is powered by exceptional leaders coming together to help put an end to Human Sex Trafficking, in all its ugly forms, in our communities. Elite provides transformational education, through empowerment to promote the evolution of the survivor to become a thriving-leader, to find their voice, and be a Warrior of Change.

Victims of modern day slavery share points of commonality. These include childhood history of abuse, neglect, a lack of self-esteem and limited or no family/community ties that support and promote vocational restoration for long-term self-sustainability.

Elite provides a unique entry point, for young adult survivors, who find themselves ineligible for community-based funded services. Our clients want and are committed to finding and creating their life and vocational path. To meet this need, Elite offers access to gap advocacy and mental health services, Genotype Change Therapy (GCT) Certified Life Coaching (Trauma & Culturally-informed), Professional Mentorship and supported employment provided through business collaborations, and community-partnerships for real-world experience.

The evolution of the survivor is not a theory, its proven science. Elite Foundation has a vision to provide A Future for Every Survivor. The story of each survivor has not yet been told, their unique impact on the world will change lives.
