Human Trafficking Awareness Course

Every year, 18,000 - 20,000 victims are trafficked into the United States, and more than half are children, according to the Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services. And it can happen anywhere. As a beauty professional, you are uniquely positioned to sense a client’s physical safety and well-being. If you’re trained in what to look for, YOU can make a difference. In this course, learn how to spot the signs, provide resources and reassure your clients that you care about their safety and well-being.

In honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, we're offering this course for FREE throughout the month of January using code ENDTRAFFICKING23.

If you'd like to take this course in combination with Domestic Abuse Awareness & Infection Control please take our Milady RISE Certification in Client Well-Being & Safety.
