National Association to Protect Children
H.E.R.O Child-Rescue Corps
The H.E.R.O. Child-Rescue Corps is a partnership between the National Association to Protect Children (PROTECT) and both the U.S. Special Operations Command and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), to train wounded, ill or injured post-9/11 veterans in cyber-security to combat online child exploitation. Veterans graduate from the program highly-trained and eligible for permanent employment within DHS. A grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation will fund one cohort of wounded, ill or injured post-9/11 veterans through the H.E.R.O. Child-Rescue Corps.
