VSDR empowers parents and community members with psycho-education through interactive workshops on human trafficking. Our workshops help you understand how to recognize risk factors and early red flags, to prevent youth from being trafficked.

In this 2 hour seminar, we will:

  • understand how domestic sex trafficking occurs in Ontario
  • learn how youth can be recruited and lured in
  • learn how COVID-19 has increased youth vulnerability
  • understand what makes a person vulnerable
  • learn how to identify if someone is being trafficked
  • understand online safety
  • identify safe adults and supports
  • learn how to speak to youth about this topic
  • hear from a survivor/parent of a survivor

The final 15 minutes of the event will be saved for questions.

This event is free of cost and geared towards the topic of domestic sex trafficking of youth in Durham Region.

This workshop is not recorded and a recording will not be made available after the presentation to uphold a safe and private environment for all attendees. We run these free workshops monthly and encourage you to join the following month if you are unable to attend.
