The Prevention Project believes that in order to eradicate Human Trafficking, the selling of human beings for profit, we must educate young people on the lures of trafficking, and invest in character and leadership development; so we not only prevent sex trafficking from occurring, but create and equip leaders to bring a lasting change for our communities and beyond.
About the Program
With 27 million victims across the globe, and with 100,000 victims in the United States alone, and with a median age of U.S. victims at 12 years old, human trafficking stands as the 2nd largest criminal industry in the world. The Prevention Project stands in the midst of this tragedy with a powerful response: to end human trafficking, and to create leaders in the movement.
The Prevention Project is a 9-week academic curriculum administered to high/middle school students, in their classrooms. The program focuses on educating the students on the issues of human trafficking locally and globally; developing healthy self-awareness and boundaries; strengthening character; and fostering leadership amongst the students. The Prevention Project empowers students to be abolitionists, to lead their generations in the fight against human trafficking, and to be the ones who see the final demise of modern day slavery.
Who We Are
The Prevention Project is supported by Richmond Justice Initiative, a grassroots, non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, equip, and mobilize communities to be a force in the global movement to end human trafficking
Furthermore, The Prevention Project was created, developed, and executed by a committed group of advocates from leading anti-trafficking organizations who have a passion to act against the perils of human trafficking, and who believe that if change is going to happen, it must begin with the young generations.
