Give Change - IJM
Give Change is a campaign from the International Justice Mission to invite teachers and their students to use their talents and resources to make a difference in the world and help free other children from slavery and other forms of oppression. Ideas range from having students collect change in their classroom for a semester or school year to asking friends and family give a certain amount based on your school grade (ex. $7 for 7th grade). The possibilities are endless. For more information, here is a downloadable guide.
Chosen - Shared Hope
As traffickers narrow their target to lure younger and younger victims, America’s youth find themselves engaged in a battle they never prepared for. Hear the shocking true stories of two “All-American” teenage girls tricked into trafficking. Eighteen-year-old Brianna was an honor-roll student, cheerleader and worked at a local café. Thirteen-year-old Lacy was an active member of her youth group, and a volunteer in her community. Both were manipulated. Both were exploited. Both were chosen.
Students in SWLA are being targeted by traffickers. The DVD comes with slideshows, and handouts on a disc that you can print out and use. The curriculum is easy to lead, however, we would love to present the program to your class or school, if needed. To order Chosen, fill out the form on the right and we will be in contact with you soon.

This report was written by the U.S. Department of Education. It talks about what human trafficking is, what signs teachers can look for in their students and the protocols schools can put into place to make their campuses trafficked-free.
"I had a feeling that my teacher knew something was wrong in my life. I would notice her looking at me . . . almost like she wanted to say something to me. I wanted to open up to her, but I was afraid she would judge me. I was afraid that she wouldn’t understand." —Child sex trafficking survivor, 16 years old
