Human Trafficking Prevention

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where a person is forced or coerced to perform services or labor against his/her will. Children as young as 9 may be at risk. “Traffickers may target minor victims through social media websites, telephone chat-lines, afterschool programs, at shopping malls and bus depots, in clubs, or through friends or acquaintances…” (US Department of Education “Human Trafficking of Children in the United States A Fact Sheet for Schools”)

GVCS also recommends the National Human Trafficking Hotline website. Their Safety Planning page has a wealth of information including potential red flags for human trafficking situations, safety tips, online safety, and safety apps.
