Exploring Human Trafficking Program (EHTP) on College Campuses

Shima Rostami | September 23 | 9:00 - 10:00 AM | Room 3020

EHTP is a coordination of programs which seek to make awareness about Human Trafficking (HT) on college campuses. The EHTP program facilitates a cooperative network of students and faculty to inform the community and facilitate students taking a role in breaking the chains of modern day slavery. This collaborative project creates original materials designed to speak to fellow college students and empower students to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. EHTP is a campaign to design a program to raise awareness against Human Trafficking on college campuses to lead youth to produce their own materials to educate other youth about Human Trafficking. This movement is called, “the Yellow Butterfly Campaign”. Youth are the next generation of leaders for our communities and deserve every chance and opportunity, which might assure them a better life in the future. Through the Yellow Butterfly Campaign, youth at college level will be facilitated to use their skills and cultural knowledge to transfer and translate a message and facts about human trafficking to different mediums to speak to other youth. In other words, this project may be called, “Youth gets empowered for and by Youth against Human Trafficking.”

EHTP encourages learners and educators to work cooperatively on human trafficking issues and enables youth to understand the complex realities and processes of today’s modern day slavery to develop values, attitudes, knowledge and skills, which will allow them to face the challenges of an interconnected world of crime, corruption, and chaos.
