Request a Human Trafficking Presentation or Training
To educate, empower, support and help combat human trafficking in our community and surrounding communities, presentations and training are provided throughout the North Texas region. In an effort to encompass the information needed for all groups to make informed decisions the curriculum provided is specifically tailored to each audience.To approach this topic in a professional and mature manner with the level of sensitivity that is required to avoid offending or disrespecting our audience, the presentation provided is designed to be age-appropriate. The average age of an individual becoming a human trafficking victim is 12 years old. Therefore, our youngest target audience could be as young as 12 years old.
Human Trafficking Presentations For All Audiences Will Cover the Following:
- What is human trafficking
- What is the difference between smuggling and human trafficking
- Where do traffickers find their victims
- The recruitment process
- Consequences of becoming a victim
- The average age and life expectancy of a human trafficking victim
- Myths and misconceptions
- Available resources to report human trafficking
When working with youth, audience participation is encouraged to help students better comprehend the concept of human trafficking. To achieve this goal, this could include, but is not limited to role play, and an open dialogue among students and the presenter. Due to time constraints the curriculum can be modified to accommodate each classroom schedule.
Human Trafficking Training is Provided to First Responder Professionals:
- Law enforcement agencies (TCLEOSE credits are provided)
- Schools (teachers, administrators, nurses and counselors)
- First responders/medical staff members
- Social service groups
