About Prevention Education

Starting in Connecticut in 2010, Love146 Prevention Education program was designed to equip students to understand the realities of human trafficking, better protect themselves and their peers from risk, and get help. Love146 opened an office in Texas in 2013 to begin offering prevention education to thousands more children in the Houston area.

In order to reach a wider and broader audience, in 2014 Love146 created Not a #Number, an interactive five-lesson human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) prevention curriculum that supports a nuanced approach to reach diverse populations of at-risk youth. This program continues to teach youth how to recognize recruitment tactics, understand vulnerabilities, and develop skills to safely navigate potential and existing exploitative situations. Youth also identify healthy support systems, and learn how to access community resources when situations occur that increase their vulnerability or if exploitation is already underway. The curriculum materials also include information and ideas on how to use Not a #Number from the perspective of a whole school or whole system response and find ways to integrate it in the context of other prevention efforts being done to improve school climate.

Updates from U.S. Prevention Education

  • “Why Prevention Education”

    When the McCain Institute and the Administration for Children and Families asked our President & Co-founder Rob Morris to give the keynote speech on “Why Prevention Education” the September, 2019 National Roundtable on Safeguarding Children and Prevention Education, he thought it might be the shortest speech ever. He boiled it down to: “Because Prevention Education will create a safer world for children.” Simple, right? But getting there is the hard part.

  • August Updates

  • Listening isn’t easy. “The stuff that my teen finds interesting is soooo borrrring” – Perspectives & Advice from fellow parents.

    In the trenches of parenting, there aren’t always right answers — but there are strategies & wisdom tested by the day-to-day tangle of family life. For January, during National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, Love146 shared new resources for Parents & Caregivers to keep children safe. Then we asked: What specifically works for you? How do you raise children to be safer in our world? We received several beautiful responses, filled with tips and insights from fellow Love146 supporters who are parents.

We’d love to keep you in the loop with periodic updates
