Hear reports from our volunteers about activities at Santa Barbara and Santa
Maria High schools.
Strategize on next steps to enforce the local recruiter policy, meetings with
high school principals, organizing with parents in Santa Maria, and
updates on the Opt Out form.
Truth in Recruitment is a non-profit, student advocacy group based in Santa Barbara, California. We are students, families, veterans, youth groups, teachers, social justice activists and members of faith communities. Our goal is to help students ask the right questions about the stakes of a military career, provide non-military options for academic and professional success, inform parents of their privacy rights, and to implement school policies regulating recruiter presence on campuses.
If you are a student or family member, please take a look at our page Life After High School for information on ways to make a difference in your community and set yourself up for an enriching career. Also, take a look at our many resources to learn about your family’s privacy rights, and how to opt out of having your child’s information released to recruiters.
You can join our movement by sharing our message and resources with your community, volunteering for community service, joining our mailing list, or making a tax-deductible donation here.
Schools are for the education of students!
