By collaborating with youth-serving organizations and families through our Personal Safety Savvy education program, children and teens are empowered to protect themselves from exploitation.
As available, items for personal safety are distributed to children and youth after participating in personal safety training and/or human trafficking prevention education. Items may be mini-flashlights w/batteries, safety rules bookmarks or postcards, and activity sheets to reinforce personal safety. Child ID kits provided by law enforcement or NCMEC may also be distributed at events.
It is essential for professionals to increase their knowledge of red flags and indicators of human trafficking and to know how to respond to a person experiencing trauma with a victim-centered approach. Together, we can build a plethora of resources to refer survivors and persons at-risk of exploitation and abuse for assistance.
Increasing awareness of human trafficking among community members is part of the solution to prevent and stop this dark, inhumane, and often hidden crime. As more adults take time to get trained on tactics used by predators and learn how to recognize and report signs of human trafficking, the safer our communities become.
Survivors and at-risk youth are referred for safe shelter, counseling, substance abuse treatment and recovery, mentoring, education, law enforcement, the CyberTipline, and the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
