Training for Staff

Teachers, administrators, counselors, and other school officials and staff are trained on how to spot signs of human trafficking and recognize potential victims in the classroom. Whether it be online or in-person, we use a trauma-informed approach and train educators on the physical signs and behaviors that could be indicative of a student facing effects of trauma. We also equip them with the tools and resources needed to report cases of human trafficking and connect potential victims to the proper professionals.

Prevention Education for Students

PROTECT aims to prevent the crime before it starts by equipping elementary-high school students with the knowledge they need to identify abusive tactics and signs of exploitation. They are taught to be upstanders in potentially harmful situations and be empowered to withstand their personal boundaries online and in-person. It is critical that students learn how to PROTECT themselves and each other, and be connected with resources that can help. 

Training for Parents, Caregivers, & Communities

We provide parents, guardians, caregivers, and other community members with teaching and guidance on keeping their kids and communities safe and protected from human trafficking. Through in-person sessions, the PROTECT online learning platform, and live webinars, we educate individuals on the signs of human trafficking and the proper ways to prevent the crime from taking place. We also equip parents, guardians, and caregivers with the tools needed to navigate the effects of trauma with their children, as well as manifest healthy, safe spaces for open conversations.

We provide tailored human trafficking prevention training for industry professionals. This includes those in the medical field, telephony, wellness, airline industry, law enforcement, utility maintenance, security, service providers, and more. These unique trainings are customized to mold with the operations of these industry professionals and offer education on signs of human trafficking and the resources needed to help prevent it.

Prevention Education Licensing

We work with other nonprofits and for-profit organizations to help implement PROTECT across the globe. We license these agencies to deliver PROTECT training and curriculum. We know that we cannot eradicate human trafficking alone, and our goal is to reach as many individuals as possible. For that reason, we have sought connections domestically and internationally that can aid in the further implementation of PROTECT.
