Keeping our youth safe and free from sex traffickers

The information provided was not only current and relevant, but it captured our students' attention and opened their eyes to a dark and dangerous part of our society. It also showed our students the importance of taking measures to protect themselves and their friends from the dangers of human trafficking.
- Dr. David Christian, High School Counselor

Thank you so much for sending Traffick911 to our school! We've gotten such amazing feedback on this program from district personnel, parents, and students. Your presenters and volunteers were amazing and so informative for our students. 
- Tiffany Wicks, Middle School Counselor

Traps is Traffick911's evidence-informed, interactive youth program designed to equip youth (ages 12-18) to avoid the tricks, traps and lures of human traffickers, utilizing survivor stories and age-appropriate videos. We reach more than 7,000 youth every year with this program. Its ideal format is a classroom-like setting (not an assembly format) that allows for optimal facilitator-youth discussion. The information provided is current, relevant, and captures the attention of the youth while opening their eyes to a dark and dangerous part of society. Youth learn practical ways to stay safe, such as alternatives to running away and appropriate internet and real world behaviors. It also empowers youth to be a voice for someone who may be trafficked by teaching them to recognize the red flags of a trafficking victim. Youth participate in a post-program activity designed for cognitive and emotional processing from learning about this tough subject matter. 

We bring the program into schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, juvenile detention centers, youth shelters and other venues. The program is geared toward ages 12-18 and is also adapted and presented to PTA's and parent groups.
