How to keep your kids safe from sex trafficking

CSEC ADVOCACY TRAINING: Through this 2-hour curriculum, youth-interveners will leave with a greater understanding of the realities of sex trafficking, its root causes, how to identify victims, etc. This training is beneficial in educating anyone working with youth on the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), and is recommended prior to Selah Freedom training the organization’s youth.

 

A sex trafficking victim can be sold 15-40 times every 24 hours.
 

SEX, LIES & MEDIA: Through our cutting-edge, multi-media Sex, Lies & Media presentation, we will educate parents and students on the online recruitment tactics of predators and equip them with practical ways to discuss this issue, protect themselves online, and be a part of the solution. This presentation can take 1-2 hours and may be presented specifically to teens or to parents/adults working with teens.

1 out of 5 children receive online solicitation.
