What We Do
Reaching more than 250,000 youth every year in 3 countries, we are the leader in prevention curriculum.
Through our extensive work in the field, ATI consistently finds teens and young adults are manipulated into trafficking scenarios due to a lack of knowledge and awareness.
Based on this conclusion, we develop an innovative solution—comprehensive, evidence-based human trafficking prevention curriculum rooted in best practices for curriculum development and implementation. Our Just Ask Prevention curriculum not only raises awareness in a culturally responsive approach but also provides vital skills for prevention and intervention.
We also offer a solution to address the need for criminal justice reform and youth in our communities through our Trafficking Resistance, Awareness, and Prevention program. This is the only program in the world that effectively leverages law enforcement in the process of prevention and begins to build back trust in communities that need it the most.

ATI is committed to ensuring that all communities have the tools and resources they need to safeguard against human trafficking. Whether through our Community Ambassador Program where we empower members of your community to take action and train, our Campus Ambassador Program—protecting college campuses all across the United States—or our Survivor Jobs Empowerment program, which helps communities support survivors in reintegrating and becoming self-sustaining members of their community, we provide vital supports that are bringing an end to human trafficking at the community level.
We also offer many educational opportunities through our Let’s Talk quarterly webinar series where we bring real-world experts to your computer screen or our annual Anti-Trafficking Conference, offering relevant training and networking for students, parents, and frontline professionals.
Human traffickers and other predators have long capitalized on the lack of training for professionals to recognize and respond to victims of exploitation. Many victims stay trapped in a cycle of exploitation because they don’t know where to turn for help.
ATI has established the International Human Trafficking Training Academy (IHTTA) to train those on the frontlines through a proven multi-vector approach. Our programs build the capacity of existing organizations by offering holistic training solutions developed by professionals who have extensive experience and knowledge on this issue.
The IHTTA has developed and deployed the Safeguard™ Training program to educate those working in the field to recognize and respond appropriately to suspected instances of human trafficking. The program is a certificated program that provides disciplinary-specific training to fit the needs of industry professionals. A list of industries we have trained is available on our website.

No one is closer to the frontlines of human trafficking than parents.
We help parents to stop human trafficking before it starts and also help parents in the aftermath of trafficking even in their own home or community.
ATI recognizes the invaluable asset of our youth in combatting human trafficking and strives to create leaders of the future. That’s why the Student Advisory Council (SAC) was one of our first programs. The SAC is committed to strengthening the voices of youth and to enhancing awareness of teen sex trafficking by empowering teen leaders and promoting youth projects. It is a unique opportunity for youth to serve on an advisory board, take on leadership roles, design and implement their own initiatives, and provide critical feedback and direction to other initiatives that ATI undertakes.

The National Human Trafficking Intelligence Center (NHTIC) is a unique and innovative collaborative which can provide secure, real-time, vetted intelligence and proven operational guidance to operators across the local, state, federal, and international direct-action engagement spectrum to identify, engage, and eliminate the human trafficking criminal element while minimizing loss of life, property, and improve national security, as well as supporting law enforcement procedural integrity crucial to the successful prosecution of captured criminal personnel and resources.
Currently the NHTIC maintains a national tip reporting system where individuals can anonymously report suspicious activity indicative of human trafficking. That information is evaluated and, if actionable, passed on to the approach frontline professionals for follow-up and intervention. Through this process, the NHTIC is also collecting information that will help paint a more accurate picture of what human trafficking looks like across the United States. As we grow, trained analysts will be able to proactively identify trafficking activity and direct law enforcement to interdict—ensuring that victims are provided pathways to exit their exploitation more effectively and timely.
You can report suspicious activity at www.ReportHT.com or by calling 1-866-TAP2TIP.
