January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, a very fitting time to launch the new CHSUBS Human Trafficking Prevention (HTP) Curriculum for grades 6 through 12! With its own facilitator training course and fully scripted lessons (modeled after the CHSUBS core curriculum), this new focused program helps illuminate the growing risks of human trafficking and teaches youth ways to stay safe. The HTP lessons are enriched with scenarios based on real-world cases and new videos for student engagement.
The HTP curriculum is available as a standalone module, yet works best when used as an adjunct to the core curriculum lessons that build students self-worth, awareness, and resistance skills. Learn more at our website (www.childhelp.org/speakupbesafe) and get a quote for your school or organization (www.childhelp.org/speakupbesafe/get-started).
The new HTP curriculum will be a part of our Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe (CHSUBS), the premier child abuse prevention education program. This evidence-based, student-facing curriculum builds strengths and teaches students in grades pre-k/k through 12 the skills to recognize, resist, and report abuse, be it physical, emotional, sexual, neglect, bullying, or cyber abuse.
