Training Description

It is well known that marginalized populations have an increased vulnerability to abuse. Marginalized members of our society, such as unaccompanied minors, runaway/homeless youth and LGBTQ youth, often fall prey to victimization which can potentially lead them to becoming victims of human trafficking. It is important to learn how to identify and respond to these victims, understand the cultural and contextual challenges they present, the service options available and how collaboration is paramount for success.
