Join us for the most comprehensive training on how to protect children and young adults from human traffickers and sexual predators. 

This will be a LIVE experience to make our community strong in this fight. It will be taught by Dan Nash and Alison Phillips, two people who have worked tirelessly to build Missouri's anti-human trafficking program and have made Missouri a leader in the fight against trafficking and to take predators out of circulation. 

Dan and Alison have criss-crossed the country to teach thousands of people in public and private enterprises how to better deal with the human trafficking problem, and routinely work with human trafficking survivors to bring them the help and services they need. 

Unfortunately, predators are everywhere.

And they are persistent, finding new victims, often children and young adults, among all socio-economic classes, neighborhoods, schools and everywhere else kids are found.

Here are just a few of the statistics ...

And the list of horrifying statistics goes on. And on. 

It’s enough to make anyone who cares about children - which should be ALL of us - want to throw up our hands and cry. 

BUT …

There's a LOT that parents and community members can do provided they are properly armed. Proper education from real experts like Dan and Alison, with firsthand and extensive experience in investigations leading to the arrests of predators, and who know how to speak and LISTEN to survivors to help them find new paths, can arm entire communities in such significant ways as to take power away from the abusers and work to eradicate this disgusting scourge on humanity

On April 17 in Ozark, Missouri, here’s some of what you’ll learn:

On April 17 in Ozark, Missouri, here’s some of what you’ll learn:

  • Why a lot of parents think it "won't happen to their kid" ... and why they may be very wrong.  
  • How to identify trafficking victims and situations, including signs that your child may be impacted by trafficking … and what to do if they need help and where to find it.. 
  • How to keep "regular kid problems" from getting so serious that they make themselves more vulnerable to predators.
  • While we think of predators as lurking in the dark and slimy shadows of the Internet, you’ll come to understand just how many “open” places those predators truly are … and how close they are to your child.
  • Why misunderstanding what human trafficking really is gives you a false sense of security while making things even more dangerous for your child! 
  • That you don’t need to shut every electronic down to better manage social media and the Internet. But that there’s a decision you need to make before you will be able to tread that line productively and safely for your child and family. 
  • What to do if you just feel lost trying to understand the dangers out there and the repercussions from dealing with them. 
  • How to use this age-old military technique to help you talk to your child in a more productive way so they don’t just say, “Yeah, mom, I already know that” in that dismissive teenage tone you hate! Or worse, tune you out completely.
  • The especially counterproductive emotion you need to avoid to make wise decisions as a parent or guardian … and how to avoid it.
  • How to better draw that very hard line between under-reactive and over-reactive.
  • In class exercises that will help you use the data in your child's phone to better understand the risks facing them.

And so much more. The above is just a sampling of what you’ll learn in a 6-hour training day that will educate, engage and inspire you in ways that will shock you. 

But you probably have no idea just how capable you are of helping to eradicate this crime that does immeasurable damage to our communities, our countries, and the world. 

This program will change that.

This program is designed for any parent, grandparent, guardian or anyone else who has a child in their care AND who is ready to engage, truly be part of a special community experience in which you feel you have a part to play, and are going to show up. 

This is a special, LIVE engagement and you will have an in person experience like no other that allows you to ask questions, engage with other community members and learn. We expect you to leave feeling ready to implement the material you have just learned. 

HOWEVER ...

This is NOT for you if you think you know everything already and are not ready to engage and learn.

Spots are limited so THERE ARE NO REFUNDS. However, if you cannot attend due to illness and you let us know in advance of the class, we will provide you with a recorded version of the class (you will need a smartphone to access the class material). 

Fear that remains dark and uneducated will rot, create stress and threaten our children. But fear that is addressed head on is empowering for ourselves and our children. 

And that is what this program is engineered for.

We hope you will join us. Because it’s only together that we will win this fight.
