About

Ending Human Trafficking in One Generation.

You may have heard about human trafficking on the news or from a friend. What is human trafficking and how does it affect us? Could you recognize a victim of human trafficking? Would you know what to do? Do you know what makes people more likely to be trafficked? 

Most people don’t know anything about human trafficking, but everyone should get educated about how to recognize potential warning signs and feel confident in their education.

The Problem

  • In Texas alone, there are more than 300,000 victims of human trafficking, including almost 79,000 minors and youth victims of sex trafficking and nearly 234,000 adult victims of labor trafficking, according to a groundbreaking study from The University of Texas
  • Human Trafficking reports grew 35% between 2014-2015
  • Much anti-trafficking training is ineffective, inconsistent, and does not scale

Kids and young adults need, and are demanding, to know more about this problem right now. Together, we can mobilize a generation of people to make small differences in their local area or with their friends and family.

The Solution: Protecting Children Through Prevention Education. Children need to:

  • Understand what to look for, what to do, and how to discuss it
  • Have professional training
  • Possess accurate, up to date information
  • Know what to do locally to help 

One Generation Education System delivers results

  • Human trafficking definitions, resources and examples, warning signs, and action plans.
  • Use “as is” or integrate into specific classes (health, history, geography, etc.)
  • Updates are automatic, requiring no costly delivery of replacement collateral.
  • Lessons are tied together through an interactive, narrative Virtual Reality (VR) experience.
  • Students / learners make an ongoing difference in their community by starting a “Changemakers” group.

Phase One – Empathy: A fully immersive and interactive virtual reality experience that generates empathy for victims because it allows students to feel what it’s like to be lured into trafficking. During the experience, they “become” Lisa, an at-risk teenager who, like many others, met aboy online that took advantage of her when she was vulnerable. 

Phase Two – Education: Blended educational modules “continue the story” from Phase One. Modules can be used “as-is” or adapted for use in any classroom. Learning modules include: Basics of Human Trafficking; Recognizing the Signs of Trafficking; and Consent and Empathy. These explain the danger of physical and psychological traps and teach corrective behaviors.

Phase Three – Empowerment - The program culminates with a final project, where students are empowered to become “Changemakers,” raising awareness, educating others, and making tangible changes in your community.

Our integrated Virtual Reality experience adds measurable value to educational outcomes.

  • VR demonstrates warning signs from a completely different perspective.
  • VR creates an “empathetic” experience that educates from a place of compassion.
  • VR increases memory retention of learning objectives.

Your help matters to these children. Victimization techniques being used on children have been in existence for eons; they need to know how to avoid them and what to do if they are in danger. We have to give them the tools to succeed in today's world. They all need to be aware, educated, and confident of their education.

Thank you SO much for finding us. Welcome home.

It costs around $375 for travel and basic expenses to provide an on-site demonstration of our system 120+ miles outside Austin. This includes marketing collateral, vehicle expenses, staff, food, and lodging (if needed).

The # of Patrons required is based upon $5/month. If the average is higher, we can do more out of town demos.
