Empowering students and schools to Stop human trafficking

Resources Tailored for You

Our resources page provides contact information for agencies and organizations that can take reports of suspected cases of human trafficking, as well as educate the public about safety and related issues.

Our Mission

Human trafficking happens in all communities. Youth have powerful voices. At the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), we believe that equipping students with knowledge and resources is an important aspect of identification and prevention. With this in mind, we developed a curriculum that helps empower students to STOP human trafficking.

TraffickSTOP (Signs to Observe and Prevent) is a human trafficking identification and prevention curriculum for high school students. NW3C trains school resource officers (SROs) or other law enforcement representatives to deliver this curriculum in select schools. The facilitators guide students through discussion and activities with support from their school and community.

The curriculum was implemented in one pilot school during the 2021-2022 school year, four schools during the 2022-2023 school year, and six schools during the 2023-2024 school year. The program is free; there is no cost to participating schools. The curriculum and supporting materials are available for use nationwide.


The program was amazing. I really feel like it opened everyone’s minds to something that isn’t really talked about that often.

Information is power. Providing students with information, skills, tools, and resources they need to identify human trafficking gives them the power to recognize the signs and prevent trafficking from occurring. The meeting plans and supporting materials can be implemented in any school and the web resources can be used by anyone to learn more about human trafficking.
