Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP)
National Human Trafficking Hotline
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ADDS TO CTIP FOR STUDENTS
As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Jerome Elam (President and CEO of Trafficking in America Task Force), is incredibly honored to be a contributor to and to also have his story as a survivor of child sex trafficking be a part of the U.S. Department of Defense Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) Program.
The U.S. Department of Defense Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) Program Management Office (PMO) and Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) developed a new course, the CTIP Student Guide to Preventing Human Trafficking. The course teaches military-connected high school students (10th – 12th grade) about human trafficking. Teens will understand how human trafficking is occurring in student settings and particularly online where exploitation of children and teens is increasingly occurring today.
The student can view as many or as few topic action cards as they would like, in any order. There are videos, quizzes, and other interactive features throughout the course.
It is accompanied by a Parent Resource Guide for military-connected parents, which explains to parents why it is important to educate students about human trafficking and walks parents through the course topics.
