The McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University partnered with the ASU Office of Sex Trafficking Intervention Research to develop a comprehensive web-based human trafficking education curriculum aimed at preventing and identifying human trafficking among school-aged youth. The curriculum is a free resource for educators that provides a safe and age-appropriate way to educate middle school and high school students on the issue of human trafficking.

School administrators can access the online certification training to equip teachers, school social workers and school nurses with the necessary information to appropriately respond to human trafficking. Once trained, teachers can educate their students utilizing subject-specific lesson plans for Economics, English, History, Journalism, Photography, Poetry, Social Justice and Theater classes. The website also provides a guide for hosting ten months of campus-wide awareness activities, quizzes, and brochures and permission slips for engaging parents.

The curriculum can be accessed online at ProjectStarfish.education.
