Resources for Survivors

Students Against Child Marriage is committed to providing assistance to those currently facing, fleeing, or recovering from a child marriage. As a student group primarily conducting underage marriage research, advocacy, and awareness operations, we have a limited capacity for direct intervention. In light of these limitations, we are offering educational resources and can connect those in need with trained professionals who are better equipped to provide intervention services. 

Child Marriage Intervention: Get Immediate, Confidential Help From Professionals

 

Our organization has partnered with Survivors’ Corner, a nationwide non-profit that supports victims and survivors of underage marriage, sexual assault, domestic violence, exploitation, and other related traumas. Through our partnership, we are able to directly and confidentially connect potential, current, and former victims—in addition to those who believe someone they know is at risk—to intervention professionals at Survivors’ Corner.

Fill out this form with your contact information and relevant background information, and Survivors’ Corner will reach out to you with resources and next steps to receive immediate assistance. Any information that you submit is completely confidential and will only be available to the senior staff of Students Against Child Marriage and the support team at Survivors’ Corner.

Educational Resources for Child Marriage Victims and Survivors

After speaking with youth marriage and domestic violence support professionals, we have identified the following studies, institutes, centers, and reports so that survivors may better understand the potential consequences of child marriage, the guidelines for recovering from childhood trauma, and the scope of underage marriage both in the United States and abroad.
