Curriculum Comparison

The Curriculum Comparison Chart was created to provide a list of human trafficking prevention curricula available around the country as well as a way to compare their features. Whether a particular curriculum does or does not have a feature is not a reflection of the quality of the program, the chart simply shows all of the features for each curriculum so that you can easily find the curriculum that best fits your particular needs and student/youth demographic.

Some curricula are for sale and some are free. A curriculum that is for sale can be purchased directly from the providing organization and used by educators in any location. Those that are not for sale are either offered by trained professionals in a particular area, or are free web-based materials. Choose the curriculum that best suit your needs, and then contact those curriculum providers for further information.

All listed curricula were reviewed and vetted by the NEST Educators advisory board--a national group of anti-human trafficking education experts and advocates. A pdf file of the entire comparison chart is available at the bottom of the page.
