What’s different about PBJ Learning?

Our founders, Billy Joe Cain and Dr. David Deeds, met while they were helping people understand complex human trafficking issues through raising empathy for victims. Together, they have blended traditional educational techniques and advances in interactive experiential learning, and have completely re-imagined human trafficking prevention education both online and in virtual reality.

They chose the name PBJ Learning to let people know their different skillsets, like peanut butter and jelly, have combined into something new, powerful, and easy to understand!

Become an expert in human trafficking prevention

Human trafficking is “modern day slavery,” which is divided into Labor Trafficking and Sex Trafficking. It generally involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. The exception is if you are under 18 years of age and trading sex for any value, that is automatically human trafficking.

Informative human trafficking training lessons explain how human trafficking generates billions of dollars of profit per year, and is second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable form of transnational crime, worldwide.

Learn the staggering facts about labor trafficking

Labor trafficking affects millions worldwide. This explains how many of the objects we desire, clothes we wear, food we eat, or technology we use are products of slavery. However, many people do not know this is happening within the United States of America (as well as across the world).

You will learn the reality of how over 80% of  (victims) in the United States are U.S. citizens, legally in the country. Above all, this is happening in plain sight, to people you would never expect. This can include domestic servitude, forced labor, and many other types of labor trafficking.

Uncover how vulnerable people can be exploited in plain sight

Most people have heard about sex trafficking through popular culture. However, they cannot recognize it happening right in front of them. And some people can not recognize when it is happening to themselves. 

You’ll learn, from survivors of human trafficking, how trauma bonding can create invisible bonds that prevent victims from realizing they are being manipulated, and how their mental health has been affected by this terror.

Like labor trafficking, sex trafficking can happen to anyone, through the means of force, fraud, or coercion. 

Unique, innovative interactive activities keep you engaged and challenged

Interactive learning is six times better than passively watching videos or reading.

study from Carnegie Mellon University shows that students using interactive learning out-perform students only learning through instructional videos by a factor of six to one.

“The amount of learning associated with each interactive activity was six times greater than for each video watched or page read.” – “Learning is Not a Spectator Sport: Doing is Better than Watching for Learning from a MOOC“, Carnegie Mellon University 

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call 911.

Human trafficking is a situation in which an individual is compelled to work or engage in commercial sex through the use of force, fraud or coercion. If the individual is under the age of 18 and engaging in commercial sex, they are experiencing human trafficking, no matter if force, fraud, or coercion is also taking place.
