Human Trafficking 101
This training is designed to provide basic information about the issue, including how to identify it, how to respond to survivors, and how to get involved in prevention and outreach.
Human Trafficking 101, Youth Presentation
This training teaches about human trafficking through a trauma-informed lens, with a focus on youth education and empowerment. We examine the basic stages of grooming and how to recognize them with real-world, accessible examples. Discussion surrounds what makes an individual vulnerable to trafficking and how to build resiliency skills to lessen those vulnerabilities. By giving young people the knowledge, tools, and confidence to confront human trafficking in this safe environment, we can empower them to be more in control when confronted with these issues in their own lives—or in the lives of their friends.
This training offers an in-depth look into the generational trauma behind human trafficking. Topics covered include intersections of human trafficking and other forms of trauma, violence, breaking cycles of generational trauma, and treatment methods.
