Not My Life has partnered with the US Fund for UNICEF’s END Trafficking Project and the Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives to offer educational curricula suitable for secondary school audiences. These free curricula provide educators with classroom resources and empower students to get involved in the anti-trafficking movement. Both offerings feature the 30-minute education version of Not My Life and conform to Common Core State Standards.

Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives: History, Human Rights and the Power of One
This curriculum offers two history-based trafficking prevention modules for use by teachers and secondary students:
Human Trafficking: Modern-Day Slavery in the United States focuses on the problem of slavery in our country by introducing the legal framework of abolition in the U.S. (including the 13th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the U.S. Trafficking Victims Protection Act) along with stories from survivors of slavery, from the past and present. The goal of this module is that students will understand how slaves were and are controlled through coercion manifested both physically and/or psychologically, and will understand the similarities and differences of historical and modern-day slavery.
Youth for Sale will provide students a basic understanding of the labor and sexual exploitation of children around the world. It describes the greatest risk factors for being trafficked and the methods international traffickers use to lure or force children into slavery. It exposes students to actual victims’ stories and empowers them to protect themselves and their peers from traffickers—as well as begin to work on projects to end trafficking worldwide.
