The San Diego Rotary Club gave $45,000 to three San Diego County school districts for training on how to spot the signs of human trafficing in their schools.  The proceeds came from club members as well as the Rotary Club of San Diego Foundation, the organization that supports the work of the San Diego Rotary, the fourth largest Rotary Club in the world.  
The money will be split among the San Diego Unified, San Marcos and Sweetwater Union school districts and used to help train 700 teachers within the next year.  An estimated 3,000 to 8,000 human trafficking victims - mostly teenagers of US citizenry - exist within San Diego, fueling the illicit $810 million industry, according to researchers  Each trafficker generates approximately $670,000 through the forced coercion of their captives
A half-day curriculum was developed by the San Diego Trafficking Prevention Collective for teachers and students from fifth to twelfth grade.  The educators say the teaching modules will help students and teachers spot red flags.
