If you are a student, and want or need to know more about human trafficking, either for an assignment or to increase your own awareness, you have come to the right place!
We urge you to look through our site to find many topics that may have interest, including:
- Training – Did you know we trained over 11,000 professionals and community members in 2017
- Aftercare – We cared for over 200 survivors of human trafficking in 2017
- Advocacy – We promote advocacy throughout the state of Tennessee, with influence on the regional and national levels. We’ve spoken about our model in the White House, U.S. Capitol and at the United Nations.
- Prevention - We created a presentation and materials for low-risk youth venues called ‘Be the Jam’, helping youth avoid the tactics of traffickers. We also hold 10 week group sessions for high risk youth in group homes, juvenile detention, schools, and low income youth programs. For more information click here.
