Prevention

Sparks Prevention Program
Why do minors need prevention education?
Sparks is an interactive, five-module prevention class that teaches minors to recognize and avoid exploitation and human trafficking.

The

Curriculum

Our prevention program uses a proven curriculum called NotA#Number developed by Love146.org, a partner organization with THRIVE New England.

All of our trainers are certified by Love146.org.

Students learn:​
  • What constitutes human trafficking and exploitation.
  • How to recognize recruitment tactics and understand vulnerabilities.
  • To challenge harmful stereotypes and societal attitudes.
  • To identify healthy support systems.
  • To develop skills to safely navigate potential and existing exploitative situations.
  • How to access community resources when situations occur that increase their vulnerabilities (or if exploitation is already underway).

The Tools

This program teaches youth how to protect themselves from human trafficking and exploitation through information, critical thinking, and skill development.  It also helps them identify their own vulnerabilities and safely navigate exploitative situations.

A common sentiment amongst survivors is:

If only one safe adult had engaged me

and taken interest when I was most vulnerable,

I likely wouldn't have fallen into

a trafficking situation.

Be that person.

Your contribution will make a lasting difference to at-risk youth!
