Volunteers make priceless contributions to the work of RAHAB. Volunteers may work behind the scenes offering services that significantly lower operating costs or may work directly with human trafficking survivors, providing a model of Christ’s love without asking for anything in return. We are deeply grateful for each person and organization who volunteers with RAHAB to shine the light of Jesus into the darkest places.

Human Trafficking 101

Duration: 1 Hour

What it is: HT 101 is an essential teaching on the realities of human trafficking. In this course, we will illuminate the issues of sex trafficking, explain a generalized process for how someone becomes involved in trafficking, and provide practical insight of how trafficking takes place. We will also highlight what we know about traffickers, how someone becomes vulnerable to trafficking, and how demand for commercial sex fuels sex trafficking. By the end of this course, you will be able to articulate the needs and vulnerabilities of trafficking survivors and have knowledge of practical solutions

Who it is for: This course is offered to all members of the community who would like to understand human trafficking and is required for all of RAHAB’s volunteers and staff
