Essential Training for Teens

Teenagers who are at most risk for domestic minor sex trafficking often have no concept of its reality. Their peers are often unaware of the risk to the teens around them. We provide strategic presentations in schools and other venues such as churches and community groups to raise awareness of the threat of sex trafficking for young people. This training provides specific tools to help attendees recognize threats and vulnerabilities to which young people may be exposed, as well as practical ways to protect them from victimization including how to establish healthy boundaries in relationships.

In addition, Gracehaven provides regular preventative education training directly to homeless or runaway youth who are served by organizations such the Huckleberry House Crisis Shelter and the OSU Star House. This outreach is critical for these youth who are at significantly higher risk for trafficking because they are on the streets.
