The Set Me Free Project began in 2015 after much training, research, and education on the evils of human trafficking. The mission of The Set Me Free Project is to bring prevention education to youth and families to stop trafficking before it starts. Our desire is to reach as many facets of the community and as many people as possible for the protection of those vulnerable to traffickers.

Are you comfortable speaking in front of others? Do you have the gift of bringing people into discussions and holding their attention? Would you like to empower youth by teaching them to protect themselves from trafficking? Would you like to equip the adults in children’s lives to better guide and protect them? If so, we want you on our team!

Our Educators are responsible for carrying out the mission of The Set Me Free Project. They accomplish the very aspect of our work which defines why we exist as an organization. 

Ideal candidates are comfortable speaking in front of an audience, don’t take themselves too seriously, and are able to read an audience and adjust speaking style, if necessary, for the benefit of audience members.

While we do our best to accommodate our educators’ preferences, travel is sometimes required. Mileage is reimbursed, and meal and gasoline expenses are covered. In the rare instance a hotel is needed, The Set Me Free Project will book a hotel room and cover the expense.

We speak on a variety of topics using separate curricula, which have been used to educate various types of audiences. We facilitate presentations in a classroom setting (preferred) or in larger groups, assembly style, when requested. While we strive to place our educators in the place of their strength, we do ask they be willing to speak to all age groups and give each type of presentation we offer, when necessary.
