victim and survivors of crime week training

Funded by the Department of Justice Canada

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen an all-time high of child/youth sexual exploitation reports across Canada. For us working in social services, this trend is very concerning. We want to support our children and youth to stay safe on, and offline. 

This is why we are inviting you to join us for a free presentation on this issue during Victim and Survivors of Crime Week.  

This prevention-based workshop is designed specifically for students in post-secondary education, who are looking for a career in social services (or related fields), and want to learn how to recognize and support victims and survivors of sexual exploitation.

The training will include an overview of youth sexual exploitation in British Columbia, case studies, trends of youth exploitation on and offline, and an overview of legal issues surrounding sexual exploitation.

You will learn:

  • The warning signs of recruitment and luring;

  • Who exploiters are and the tactics they use;

  • How technology is used to exploit young people;

  • The laws related to child/youth sexual exploitation and human trafficking;

  • How to access community services, how to report, and what to expect when dealing with the justice system;

  • The importance of working with other agencies and sectors to best support victims and survivors.
