On Friday, Florida Atlantic University graduates were recognized for their scholastic achievements at the 2019 commencement. Amongst the honorees was a former graduate, Carly Yoost.

Yoost graduated from FAU 10 years ago. On Friday she was awarded the President’s Distinguished Services Medallion for her nonprofit, Child Rescue Coalition.

Child Rescue Coalition builds technology to help law enforcement departments identify and track child predators.

“We are now in 96 countries around the world where the technology is being used and thousands of officers train on our tool,” Yoost said.

Yoost said through this technology they’ve been able to direct rescue (?) over 2,800 children because law enforcement departments have the tools they need to find and protect children.

Up next, Yoost hopes to advance her technology so it can be used with babysitting sites and ride-sharing services to keep predators away from children.
