Resources for Youth Vulnerable to Trafficking

Youth who age out of foster care are particularly susceptible to homelessness and becoming victims of human trafficking. The National Center for Homeless Education offers an informational webpage of resources on human trafficking targeted toward unaccompanied homeless youth and youth leaving foster care.

The webpage includes links to an issue brief and a literature review that provides information about the growing epidemic of human and sex trafficking in the United States. In addition, a link to a factsheet on recognizing and addressing human trafficking written specifically for educators is provided. Links to various government entities and nonprofit agencies that focus on the prevention of human trafficking and the education of the general population about human trafficking also are shared on this webpage. Links provided also offer resources for the rehabilitation of victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

The Human Trafficking webpage is available here on the National Center for Homeless Education website.
