Recognize and Report Signs of Human Trafficking

K-12 educators, including teachers, administrators, and all school staff, are in a powerful position to recognize and report suspected trafficking, to protect our students and our community. This professional development course focuses specifically on what K-12 educators need to do to recognize and report suspected human trafficking.  This training is designed to work with “Full Circle Safety:  Sexual Abuse Prevention for K-12 Educators,” and also stands on its own. 

In this training, teachers, instructional support staff, principals, coaches, counselors, and other school staff who work with students will learn: 
  • Basic information about the 3 types of Human Trafficking
  • Understanding the vulnerabilities that increase risks for trafficking, and how we can support at risk-students as educators
  • Understanding the risk factors for human trafficking
  • Recognizing the warning signs of abusive relationships
  • Understanding the 6-step grooming process that traffickers use to lure and entrap their targets
  • What to do when trafficking or other abuse is suspected or disclosed

Skills for Healthy Relationships

Teachers will also learn how to teach safety skills to their students, in age-appropriate ways. Key Kidpower-Teenpower concepts for developing healthy relationships and preventing human trafficking include:
  • How to be a safe adult for students to approach for help
  • Kidpower-Teenpower emotional safety skills
  • Understanding how emotional “triggers” lead youth to make unsafe decisions
  • Taking the power out of those triggers
  • Making the Kidpower Protection Promise and Put Safety First Commitment to your students
  • Crucial words to say to a student who is disclosing potential abuse
