The San Diego Trafficking Prevention Collective (SDPTC) is an end-to-end prevention education program that aims to protect every student from exploitation. This comprehensive program goes beyond minimum standards. It works hand-in-hand with school districts to ensure they have the proper prevention measures and agile programming to respond to the unique needs of diverse youth.
