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.


If you’re interested in being updated as our curriculum develops and becomes available for others to implement with youth…

Updates from U.S. Prevention Education

  • My Body is Mine: Perspective from one Malagasy teammate

    A member of the Love146 team in Africa reflects on presenting our “My Body is Mine” flip chart: “The children in Madagascar need to be reached because their parents aren’t talking about sexual abuse, or sexuality, with them. So kids aren’t aware of it. Even me, I was not. I didn’t know the meaning of the word “rape” until I was 15. It wasn’t until I was older when I understood what it was.

  • END IT

    Shine a Light on Slavery Day is part of the growing movement of people coming together to take a stand against human trafficking. It’s a day for us to celebrate how far we’ve come and rally for the fight ahead. It’s a day for us to take a stand, to join together and use our collective voices to say no more. It’s a day when you can look around and see how many others are standing with alongside you in this conviction. We are here to fight until the abolition of trafficking and exploitation is complete.

  • Bringing Prevention to Youth in Detention

    Our Prevention team visited a juvenile detention center to speak with young people about human trafficking. What happened gave us hope.

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