Thrive Prevention
Program

We offer an interactive, 2 - 6 session curriculum that teaches school-age children how to recognize and avoid sex trafficking and  human trafficking.
Why do minors need prevention education?

Human trafficking cases have been reported in every state in the United States. Victims range in education levels, socio-economic status, and are foreign nationals or U.S. citizens. Human trafficking is the second largest, fastest growing crime. Experts estimate that there are 40.3 million people trapped in human trafficking at any given point, which is more than any other point in recorded history.

The
Curriculum

Our prevention program equips schools, after-school programs, and youth groups with tools needed to prevent teens from becoming victims of human trafficking, while also providing resources on effectively engaging students, recognizing the signs, and safely reporting trafficking situations. 

Students will be educated on the issues of:
  • human trafficking locally and globally.
  • developing healthy self-awareness and boundaries.
  • strengthening character and fostering leadership.
  • recognizing human trafficking lures and red flags.
  • developing practices for online safety.
  • understanding the stages of grooming and risk factors, and know how to best intercept situations and prevent future ones.
