A recent trip to Bangor, Maine brought education and awareness to audiences from Dawn Schiller, Founder of E.S.T.E.A.M., an organization formed to assist teens on the streets to prepare themselves for a better adulthood.
Schiller spoke at The Shaw House, a facility which is a shelter, education center and transitional housing for teens who have nowhere else to call home. Expounding on her own story of a dysfunctional childhood which left her in an abusive relationship with a 32 year old man, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and trafficked on the streets of Las Angeles, Dawn continues to show that there is hope beyond what seems to be a bleak outcome.
Dawn presented a 2 hour workshop at both The Shaw House and the Mountainview Correctional Facility, giving direction to teens and raising the awareness of the consequences of abuses and neglect in families across the country. She gives an inside view of what it’s like to be a throwaway teen and how communities can unite to assist them through mentoring and programs.
Schiller then presented the keynote, “Our Throwaway Teens – Who Are They and How Can We Help?” at the University of Maine, Orono. She educates the audience on what a teen might be experiencing internally when targeted and groomed by a predator, how to identify a young victim in trouble, pedophile seduction techniques, and the use of drugs to manipulate and trap a victim.
Catch up with Dawn Schiller on Tuesday, June 14 as she speaks to her local Rotary.
