Children of the Street is dedicated to preventing the sexual exploitation and human trafficking of children and youth in British Columbia through education strategies, public awareness initiatives, and family support. Children of the Street is a program of PLEA Community Services Society of BC.



Every year, we reach thousands of young people through our school-based prevention workshops.  Our programs provide young people with the information and practical tools they need to learn how to keep safe from sexual exploitation.



Some kids are more vulnerable to sexual exploitation. We work with small groups of high-risk kids to prevent future exploitation while providing a safe space to discuss in-depth the affects of this devastating crime. 



We support youth and families by offering early intervention services, support, and referrals services for those affected by sexual exploitation and trafficking.
