Educator Workshop: Human Trafficking Professional Training

Online Program

March 24, 2021 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Learn how to recognize and prevent trafficking and exploitation in the classroom.

Event Details

The Bullock Museum exhibition, Not Alone: Working Together in the Fight Against Human Trafficking, focuses on enlightening and empowering youth and young adults to better understand, prevent, and combat this significant community issue.

Educators, join us for a workshop with representatives from Love146, an organization dedicated to ending child trafficking and exploitation. The workshop will provide professionals who work with at-risk youth the tools to help influence and protect their communities. Through a guided presentation informed by Love146's experience working with at-risk and exploited youth in diverse settings, the presenters will provide information on how participants can effectively reach and empower youth through prevention education.

The focus will be on vulnerabilities among youth from all backgrounds and the connections between those vulnerabilities and grooming tactics. Participants will analyze vulnerability factors, and discuss how to prevent, identify, and respond to risky behaviors, or existing exploitative situations. The session will emphasize the steps youth advocates, case managers, and educators can take to identify and respond to suspected exploitation. 

Workshops provide valuable information and practical skills you can apply in your professional experience. 

Program is FREE to the public, and participants will receive CPE credit, SBEC approved. Questions? Email Education@TheStoryofTexas.com
