A Model Prevention Curriculum
Empowering Youth since 2013 to Avoid Exploitation



Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) in Northern Virginia is a recognized pioneer and national leader in providing a school based, comprehensive trafficking prevention program. This program has been presented to more than 40,000 students in PWCS high schools and middle schools. Furthermore, PWCS is the only public school district in the country that offers wrap-around services for its students who have self-identified or have been recognized.

Since 2013, over 700 students have come forward as a result of this 90-minute, evidence-based, interactive classroom lesson. Of those students, 223 have been identified as having been sexually assaulted, groomed or victims of trafficking.
