what is it?
PROTECT provides human trafficking prevention education to students and teachers to prevent the potential exploitation of children. Educators and school personnel are provided with an online training program, as well as 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grade curriculum and vetted resources to use in their classroom.
This program, co-founded with our non-profit partners, LOVE NEVER FAILS and FREDRICK DOUGLASS FAMILY INITIATIVES, teaches students the signs and tactics of traffickers so they can protect themselves and others from victimization. It also trains teachers how to recognize when a child is at-risk of being trafficked and how to connect that student to the resources they need. PROTECT fosters an ongoing conversation and establishes a system of protocols within each county to protect children from exploitation.
