The new Hope for Justice Learning Academy provides specialist online human trafficking training, tailored to the needs of different groups who are vital in the fight against exploitation.
What is the Hope for Justice Learning Academy?
The Hope for Justice Learning Academy is a dedicated online learning portal offering interactive training for the public and for frontline practitioners including clinicians, law enforcement and employees and management within the hospitality industry. Currently, these courses are being launched in the US but online courses for the UK and other global locations are planned.
Does Hope for Justice offer free human trafficking training at the Learning Academy?
Hope for Justice has also partnered with the Young Living Foundation to develop a course. This three-part, interactive multimedia course will help parents and caregivers understand and actively protect their kids from online exploitation.
The Hope for Justice Learning Academy is a single online portal dedicated to anti-trafficking training
Tim Rasmussen, Hope for Justice’s Digital Learning Manager, said: “We are very excited to be pioneering this critical resource in the fight against human trafficking. Currently, there is no single online portal dedicated to anti-trafficking training. The Hope for Justice Learning Academy is designed for that purpose: To grow awareness and develop practitioner skills to actively identify and address the circumstances of labor, sex and online exploitation.”
Anti-trafficking courses authored by experts
Our online courses are authored by experts who are actively working as investigators, clinical or law enforcement practitioners, social workers, program specialists, country specialists and in other critical frontline roles in the field of human trafficking.
The courses empower frontline practitioners and the public to recognize signs of human trafficking and safely take action on behalf of victims. Hope for Justice Learning Academy courses empower people to take action with confidence, should they spot the signs of human trafficking.
Future plans for the Hope for Justice Learning Academy
We will also be translating our courses into multiple languages, to extend training access to non-English speaking populations in the US and globally. Our ambitious plans for the future will provide courses tailored to those who are vulnerable to being trafficked themselves. We want to make them aware of the warning signs, and let them know how we can help.
The goal of the Hope for Justice Learning Academy is to broaden and deepen our prevention impact and ultimately lead to more victims finding their freedom.
The Hope for Justice Learning Academy will be rolled out to other countries in which the charity operates, providing courses tailored to key audiences locally, in the coming months.
