Colorado professionals: The Colorado Human Trafficking Council (COHTC) released their standardized curriculum, An Introduction to Human Trafficking in Colorado. For individuals residing in Weld County, Larimer County, Jefferson County, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, or the Western Slope regions, please contact the COHTC to be connected with a facilitator near you. Presentations can be given in 1-, 2-, or 2.5-hour trainings in order to meet the time restrictions and content requirements needed by your organization or group. The COHTC's An Introduction to Human Trafficking in Colorado is free for attendees.

Professionals outside Colorado: While Free Our Girls is honored and available to present a "101" training to your business or community group, we also recognize that travel and training expenses can make this difficult. It is for this reason that we are happy to connect you with a Survivor Leader near you who would be able to deliver an introductory-level training to not only ensure your group is receiving quality, informative content, but also to ensure your training budget is used most efficiently. To be connected with a Survivor Leader who offers these trainings in your area, please contact us at training@freeourgirls.org.
