    “I didn’t know a lot about human trafficking or how serious an issue it is before the Prevention Project program. After attending all the lessons, the Prevention Project really made the issue real for me. Now, I try to tell as many people as I can, whenever possible.” Prevention Project Student

    “This experience has shown me that I’m much more capable of making a difference than I ever thought I was. Thank you!” Prevention Project Student

    Below are many samples of projects and responses from students after going through the Prevention Project program. Students make such a difference through their creativity and passion to spread the word to their friends, family members, and community about human trafficking awareness and prevention. 

    Students and teachers: if you are interested in showcasing what you or your class is doing, apply to be featured on the website by emailing info@prevention-project.org!

    After going through the Prevention Project curriculum in Fall of 2015, students at Hermitage High School had a competition to make a poster for an educational movie night they would be hosting. This is the fourth movie night of its kind held at Hermitage High School, where students share what they learned about human trafficking with the school and the community. The winning poster is featured here, as well as the photo of the classroom of students busy at work on their posters.

    #KidsAreNotForSale

    Prevention Project students get involved on the Capital, advocating for the #‎KidsAreNotForSale legislation,establishing Virginia’s first standalone sex trafficking law (companion bills HB 1964 and SB 1188 were signed into law on March 27, 2015 by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe).  Students designed and implemented a student photography project to promote the legislation and visited their representatives at the Capital to speak on behalf of their support of the legislation.
    “This law: clearly defines and establishes the offense of sex trafficking…establishes penalties that reflect the seriousness of the offense…”

    Blackout Basketball Game

    In February, 2015, students from Grants Pass High School in Oregon planned a Blackout Basketball game to support anti-trafficking awareness at their school. In this event, students, band and cheerleaders all took a stand and wore black as their banner. 2015 is the first year that the Prevention Project curriculum was implemented in this school, and we can’t wait to see all the student projects that come out of learning about human trafficking awareness and prevention!

    Student Video

    This video was created by Camille Karabaich in response to the knowledge she gained about human trafficking through the Prevention Project program at Hermitage HS. Here she dissects the issue of labor trafficking through striking, hand-drawn visual narrative. We have seen countless excellent videos that come out of this program, this is merely one example that we chose as best submission from her class.

    Movie Nights

    Prevention Project students at Hermitage High school put on a Community Movie Night November 2014 at their school to raise awareness of human trafficking and the importance of prevention. The event included an introduction to human trafficking by a program student, a documentary, and a Q&A panel comprised of students and anti-trafficking professionals to answer questions after the movie. They did a great job, and it was a wonderful success with nearly 200 in attendance!
