prevent-child-trafficking-and-abduction

Active training featuring real people and real stories about protecting children from abduction and sexual exploitation.

We want you to become confident and competent, know how to recognize the signs of child trafficking, prevent abduction and react skillfully if it occurs.

Real People & Real Stories

You’ll meet survivors who lived through abduction, captivity and child trafficking. Survivors who have experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves. You’ll also meet experts who work with children and families, and confront exploitation on a daily basis.

In Your Back Yard

In 80% of abductions by strangers, the first contact between the child and abductor occurs within a quarter mile of the child’s home.

This means that whether you work with youth, are a parent, or are simply a member of a community, it is highly likely that someone you have come in contact with, knows someone who is missing. As scary as it is, it can be stopped.

Online or Face-to-Face

Guardians of Freedom™ is available in a group setting led by an Extract Effect Authorized Facilitator or it can be taken individually online.

The training is 2  hours.

Youth Prevention

Our student prevention program delivers holistic, gender responsive prevention education to youth ages 12-19 who are vulnerable to commercial sexual exploitation in schools, at community-based organizations, and in the community using a resiliency building curriculum that is focused on reducing vulnerabilities of youth.

Extract Effect uses Guardians of Freedom JR. curriculum for our preventative trainings to youth. The curriculum offers critical information on healthy relationships, responsible media consumption, the sexual objectification of men, women and children, and commonly used exploiter tactics, using accessible and engaging formats such as interactive games, group discussions, journaling, and storytelling.

We believe in the brilliance of young people and know that with the right tools and support available, vulnerable youth can become empowered to make safe choices and recognize the signs of the unhealthy relationships that often serve as an entry into sex trafficking.

Our prevention curriculum can be delivered as a 6 week group, a 90 minute presentation, or a 1 day conference.
