You can make a difference. We have a massive vision and aggressive goals and the only way we're going to get there is with your help. Volunteers are the heartbeat of Traffick911. We are constantly looking for passionate, caring, like-minded, sold-out abolitionists to join us on the ground as we prevent, identify and empower victims of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST). See Our Work to learn more about where our current programs are located.

Volunteer clearance process
At Traffick911, we plug people in where they are passionate and gifted. Due to the sensitive nature of our work, prospective volunteers must complete the following four steps in order to get cleared to become an official volunteer. Once you become a cleared volunteer, you will receive the next steps for training on the specific area you're interested in. Please read ALL of the below items in their entirety.
1. Complete the volunteer application
2. Provide a background check (Investigative Consumer Report) In order to volunteer you must clear an Investigative Consumer Report, which includes a Social Security Number Verification/Address History, Nationwide Sex Offender Registry, Multi-State Criminal Search and Single County Searches. Although this form mentions credit, we do not check your credit report. Your information will remain confidential.
To complete your $15.95 background check, click the button below, which will direct you to our 3rd party provider. Enter the password "BG2013t911" and click "I Agree." The site will walk you through the information and payment process. Unfortunately, we cannot accept background checks from other providers. We will receive the results directly from our provider.
3. Attend a volunteer orientation | We hold volunteer orientations in different parts of Texas each month. Check the upcoming orientation list on this page to see when the next one is scheduled. You do not have to have any of the above items complete in order to attend an orientation. Please RSVP to the orientation via the RSVP form on the event page. You are welcome to attend any orientation, regardless of which county you live in.
4. Sign the Release Waiver and Non-disclosure Agreement | You may return the signed documents via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or when you attend a volunteer orientation.
**In addition to completing the four steps above, we strongly recommend that you take time to read at least one Recommended Books and watch one or two Recommended Films. To learn even more, check out the Recommended Research portion of our site. The more educated you become, the more likely you are to recognize where your gifts and talents can play a role in helping us fight this crime.
