Community & Professional Training

Washington Trafficking Prevention (WTP) trains professionals and community members to gain a deeper understanding of what human trafficking is, identify the signs of trafficking, undertake a practical response in their setting or community, and identify community resources for safety and referrals.

We currently offer the following training opportunities for community members and professionals:

HUMAN TRAFFICKING 101

You will learn the basics about what human trafficking is, how to recognize potential trafficking, and how to respond in your own community.

This training is for anyone who wants to learn more about human trafficking here in Washington State, including community members, organizations, parents and families.

Duration: 90 minutes, but can also be adapted from a formal training to a shorter presentation


EDUCATORS RESPONDING TO THE COMMERCIAL SEXUAL EXPLOITATION & TRAFFICKING OF YOUTH

You will leave this training with an understanding of what human trafficking is, risk factors facing youth, the impacts of exploitation, and the unique role you play in responding to potential victims of trafficking in your setting.

This training is meant for educators and youth-serving professionals, both within school settings and out in the community.

Duration: between two and three hours


YOUTH EDUCATION

WTP's program staff partner with schools and youth-serving agencies to effectively implement prevention education. Our programming challenges the root causes of exploitation; and works to change the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that contribute to the demand for and growth of this criminal industry.

If you are interested in bringing a WTP trainer to work with youth in your program, contact us!
