Welcome to LiarsAndPosers!
Freedom Youth Project Foundation- announces an initiative aimed at combating Human Trafficking through prevention training designed specifically for high target victims. In America, Human Trafficking affects adults and minors, and can exist in the form of labor or sex-trafficking.  The single largest demographic affected is girls 12 - 14 years of age. Boys, in this same age group, comprise about 20 percent of underage victims.

Over Two Years in the Making -- Over two years was devoted to developing prevention strategies to teach youth how to recognize the deception Traffickers employ to lead youth into the "trafficked life."

"All trafficking begins with deception
The best way to prevent someone from becoming a victim 
is to teach them to instantly recognize deception 
when it happens face-to-face and online." 

The deception and manipulation skills traffickers often employ would make you think they have had advanced psychological training.  They are so good at it, abduction into "the life" of being trafficked is passive.  Victims almost always go willingly from a safe location to somewhere else, where they are trapped.

While the information presented doesn’t shy away from tough facts, the purpose is not to frighten but to empower. Empowerment is provided through teaching of choices and recognition of danger signs. 

What is LiarsAndPosers?

Easy to Learn, Remember & Use

The result was a ground breaking training called Liars and Posers TM .  Liars And Posers TM  utilizes mnemonic device to create an easy to remember system when out in the "real-world."  The words L.I.A.R.S. (and) P.O.S.E.R.S. are acronym words  in which each letter stands for a Red Flag of Deception.  L.I.A.R.S. are the first letters of red flags one would recognize in face-to- face encounters with a predator.  P.O.S.E.R.S. are the first letters of red flags of deception used when encountering a predator online, such as with social media or in chat rooms.   Liars And Posers TM  also teaches how choices impact how attractive someone is as a target.  Since its initial development, versions of Liars And Posers TM  training have been adapted for foster youth, foster parents, educators, and social service professionals.    


Freedom Youth Project is excited to announce an upcoming book 4th Qtr 2015 based on Liars and Posers training. The book is designed for a reader 12 and up and provides real-world examples of each of the red flags of deception that are part of Liars and Posersprevention training.

Please stay tuned more information to follow on how to pre-order the book.
