Campaign Against Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence, known as CAHT, has a volunteer mentoring program headed by CAHT board member, Deborah Petrocelli. 
The program partners with other organizations in the area, such as schools, churches, food pantries and youth organizations offering tutoring, life- skill coaching, counseling and plain old “we care about you” messages and services.  Some of our mentor volunteers have developed close relationships with their students, helping them as they advance through the school systems, career planning, and supporting their families’ struggles with the financial changes caused by the COVID19 epidemic.  Bonnie Doll, CAHT volunteer and board member, and Lennard High School graduate Larissa Saldano, are one of the successful mentoring teams. They have developed a rewarding relationship where Larissa knows she can reach out to Bonnie at any time, even enjoying a lunch out. “Larissa is also one of this year’s CAHT scholarship winners, which will help her continue her dream of becoming a nurse,” states Bonnie Doll.  This year CAHT awarded 7 scholarships to aspiring graduates. 
If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Debbie Petrocelli at 813-922-4580.  CAHT is a 501(c)(3) organization located in Sun City Center. Our mission is to prevent the spread of human trafficking and domestic violence in the south shore area through funding, prevention/education programs for all ages, mentoring, and a safe shelter program that removes individuals or families out of harm’s way.  For more information contact  President Annie Garrison at 813-938-5660 or
