*NEW* Responding to Human Trafficking in the Title X Context Toolkit
[instant download]

January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, raising awareness that human trafficking is a federal crime that affects communities throughout the United States and exploits individuals of all backgrounds, races, ages, and genders. Title X grantees must ensure that every staff member who serves or interacts with clients is able to: identify and report human trafficking, and take action and make appropriate referrals to improve a client’s safety and situation.

This new toolkit will guide your agency to develop a client-centered response to human trafficking cases and provides information, tools, and training for staff. Explore the toolkit.

Sustainability efforts beyond Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program grant funding can be challenging to execute and maintain but are critical to program success.

Each meeting package addresses one to two sustainability factors and includes foundational information and activities from the resource guide. 

Meeting packages include suggested agendas and associated resources to help programs facilitate a staff meeting on a particular topic, either virtually or in-person. Explore the series.
