Community Training


Our community training is designed to give community members an in-depth understanding of commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking with a focus on the East Texas area. Anyone is welcome to attend with no expectation to volunteer with For The Silent. For those interested in volunteering with FTS, this training is required.


Our trainings are from 10am-5pm on Saturday. They include interactive learning, videos, and survivor and law enforcement speakers.

The cost is $25/person or $40/couple. Coffee, snacks and lunch are provided!
