Human trafficking Prevention Education

Not a #Number Curriculum

Not a #Number is an interactive, five-module prevention  curriculum designed to teach youth how to protect themselves from human  trafficking and exploitation through information, critical thinking, and  skill development. Not a #Number uses a holistic approach  focusing on respect, empathy, individual strengths, and the relationship  between personal and societal pressures that create or increase  vulnerabilities.

Effective prevention often starts by raising awareness of harmful  stereotypes and attitudes that create vulnerabilities and keep youth  from seeking help.

Through open conversations, engaging activities, the use of media, and opportunities for self-disclosure, participants will:

  • Raise their awareness of what constitutes human trafficking and exploitation.
  • Learn how to recognize recruitment tactics and understand vulnerabilities.
  • Challenge harmful stereotypes and societal attitudes.
  • Identify healthy support systems.
  • Develop skills to safely navigate potential and existing exploitative situations.
  • Learn how to access community resources when situations occur that  increase their vulnerability (or if exploitation is already underway).

Have you ever engaged in sexual activity in  exchange for money, a place to sleep, food, drugs, alcohol, or in  exchange for anything else?

If yes, the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) can help you.

They give free, confidential, one-on-one support. You can call if you  need someone to talk to, if you are in an emergency, or if you need any  other help. For example, the hotline can connect you with agencies that  can get you shelter, counseling, legal services, and other help.

You can also call the hotline if you are worried about a friend,  family member, or anyone else who may be involved in “the life” or is  receiving money, shelter, drugs, or anything else in exchange for sex.
