We believe prevention is our BEST APPROACH TO DECREASING HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
We see many instances in which human trafficking is preventable, and strive to model and teach a way of life that keeps men, women and children from being bought and sold as commodities.
We are currently focusing our prevention work in the following areas:
- My Life My Choice groups for girls ages 12-18 (6-8 weeks, small group format)
- Community workshops (Human Trafficking 101/201 and related workshops)
- Human Trafficking Youth Presentations and 1 day conferences
- We are researching prevention programs for boys and plan to launch programs in 2018

Here’s what students are saying about our My Life My Choice program:
What would you tell a friend about this program?
“How great this could be, this program isn’t just about sexual exploitation, but relationship advice and any other help.”
“If I were telling a friend about this program I’d tell her that is something every teenage girl should experience because they teach us what to look out for and everything that comes with being put in this kind of situation.”
What will you do differently in your life because you came to My Life, My Choice?
“I think I’m going to become an officer. I have a sister in prostitution and no one really cares for the actually victims of trafficking. I will watch and I will listen.”
“I won’t let a guy ever control me and tell me what to do and what not to do. And I’ll also be more aware of what’s healthy and what’s not in a relationship.”
“Think about who I’m really associating with.”
“…I will watch out what I choose to put on any of my social media accounts.”
“Things I will do differently is everything. I don’t want to continue in this life so therefore, I will use the resources that were given.”
