Human Trafficking Awareness Course

Every year, 18,000 - 20,000 victims are trafficked into the United States, and more than half are children, according to the Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services (click here for more information).

It can happen anywhere.

In this course, learn how to spot the signs, provide resources and reassure your clients that you care about their safety and well-being.
