Human Trafficking Youth Prevention Education

Kent County serves as a Demonstration Site for implementation of Human Trafficking Youth Prevention Education (HTYPE) programming through a federal grant with OTIP (Office on Trafficking in Persons). This grant offers the opportunity to build on the existing work of Wedgwood’s Manasseh Project, SEE: Solutions to End Exploitation, and the Kent County Area Human Trafficking Coalition.

Goals of this project include: build capacity within our educational institutions to support staff in recognizing and reporting suspected incidents of human trafficking, utilize community agencies to support our students who may be experiencing (or are at risk of experiencing) human trafficking, and implement prevention education curricula that educates and empowers our middle and high school youth.
