Your Training Description

Human trafficking is exploitation of a person involving force, fraud, or coercion. Many people think of human trafficking as sex trafficking. But an equally harmful form is labor trafficking. This is a global issue and it can happen right under our noses. Young people may not even realize they are in a trafficking situation until it is too late. Learn warning signs you can watch for and questions you can ask to identify when a young person needs help.

Your Learning Objectives

  • Gain an understanding of labor trafficking and how it impacts young people and adults
  • Be able to identify warning signs of labor trafficking
  • Learn what you can do to support people affected by labor trafficking
