Academic paper as a recommendation to the government in determining policies and strategies for preventing trafficking in persons. 4. Guidelines for the implementation of Economic Empowerment to prevent trafficking in persons. Interventions that will be carried out by researchers in the performance of this economic empowerment model are through the formation of groups. The method used in this research is Participative Action Research. The results showed different characteristics of each group with different social backgrounds and regional potential. The groups in Bolaang Mongondow and South Minahasa are still not independent because they require a relatively long time to empower them to produce independent businesses. The groups in Minahasa District are somewhat more advanced because they already have previous companies. So that increasing competence is only related to business management, including marketing. This group shows more refined results than others. Especially for groups in Bitung and Manado's cities, the process of competency improvement and empowerment itself will be continued in the following year. The provisional results for the economic empowerment-based trafficking prevention model's trial, target groups can develop if they are aware and know that they have undeveloped potential. After being given motivation, self-confidence appears, and an interest in starting a business seems. If self-confidence already exists, the process of providing competence can quickly be passed through intervention.
