About Prevention Education

Starting in Connecticut in 2010, Love146 Prevention Education program was designed to equip students to understand the realities of human trafficking, better protect themselves and their peers from risk, and get help. Love146 opened an office in Texas in 2013 to begin offering prevention education to thousands more children in the Houston area.

In order to reach a wider and broader audience, in 2014 Love146 created Not a #Number, an interactive five-lesson human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) prevention curriculum that supports a nuanced approach to reach diverse populations of at-risk youth. This program continues to teach youth how to recognize recruitment tactics, understand vulnerabilities, and develop skills to safely navigate potential and existing exploitative situations. Youth also identify healthy support systems, and learn how to access community resources when situations occur that increase their vulnerability or if exploitation is already underway. The curriculum materials also include information and ideas on how to use Not a #Number from the perspective of a whole school or whole system response and find ways to integrate it in the context of other prevention efforts being done to improve school climate.

I listed Love146 in my post 5 Organizations Fighting Human Trafficking and Injustice You Need to Know. I wanted to highlight a little more about what they do, and thought it would be best in their own words. Go, visit their site and see how you might get involved.
