Do Not Become a Statistic
Elite foundation’s education on prevention and awareness has been widely received nationally, as well as internationally. Educating kids and parents has proved to be a proactive measure in keeping kids safe in an age where they are taught that it is ok to talk to strangers. However, Elite has studied the market and while there are plenty of materials that support teenagers and adults, this is not the case for kids under the age of 11. This makes this population more vulnerable because they are nearing the average age of entry into Sex Trafficking, completely unshielded.
Elite has created a curriculum that proactively teaches children from the age of 5 up to adults to be “TraffickedProofed” by focusing on the avoidance of being a TARGET, TRICKED or TRAPPED by traffickers.
TraffickProof recognizes that developing a practical preventive resource requires significant investment in understanding the perspective of young students and listening to victims. This curriculum uses targeted education informed by the voices and experiences of victims. It is culturally sensitive and trauma-informed to promote enhanced emotional intelligence, esteem, and awareness. The curriculum provides memorable illustrations and easy-to-understand language that equips those who wish to train others and those who need training.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Considering the awful consequences of human trafficking, TraffickProof’s 3T paradigm (Target, Trick, Trap) provides an age-appropriate learning investment for children that may spare them the experience of being trafficked and exploited.
