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