NEARLY 5,000 STUDENTS & ADULTS TRAINED THROUGH PREVENTION

We continue to expand our Prevention Pillar around the country and world through our collaboration with Operation Underground Railroad. We are excited to kick off training this summer with the Martha's Vineyard School District and Boys and Girls Club. Trainings are also being planned for Chicago, Arizona, New York and more.

After being trained in the S.P.E.A.K. Up curriculum students have immediately come forward to seek help and school have been equipped to recognize the warning signs.

​“After our very first training, we had students come forward and we were able to help them get safe.”

-Cesar Roman, Counseling Coordinator, RCMA Academy

"I was a victim of sexual abuse. I wish I would have received this training earlier."

We offer a companion piece for parents and students to use at home, The Cool Aunt Series. ​Using engaging and age-appropriate cinema, storytelling, lecture, and questions, the series walks teens through the STREAMS of Influence - the seven risk factors that lead to sex trafficking: Survival, Trafficker, Recruiter, Environment, Abuse, Media, Solicitation. Click here to get The Cool Aunt Series now.

 

Check out what people are saying:

"I am a social worker in Child Protective Services in California. I really appreciate your series as it was very helpful to provide different language and an approach to talk to youth about sex trafficking. The video is centered for teens to watch, as well as including Rachel's survivor story. This is a very helpful resource in hopefully better connecting with and supporting youth who are at-risk and/or being harmed by sex trafficking."
