Review for Northwest Family Services, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As the coordinator for National Educators to Stop Trafficking (NEST) I get the distinct privilege of receiving success stories from organizations who work in the anti-human trafficking arena and have written prevention curriculum and resources for educators. Here is one about the "Deceptions" program facilitated by NWFS.

“Thank you so much for bringing this program to our school! I was trafficked last year when I was thirteen and had some really bad things happen to me. Girls need to know this is really happening in our community,” says a 14-year-old high school student.

Vancouver Police Department’s, Sergeant John Chapman explains, “Unfortunately, in the past two years local law enforcement has learned that domestic minor sex trafficking is a very real problem that greatly impacts our community. It is very exciting to have a new curriculum presented in our schools that will warn our boys and girls of the dangers and consequences that lurk within innocent locations and relationships. We need to inform our kids and give them skills to recognize threats and retreat.”
