Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children Awareness & Identification:
Did you know that foster care is a pipeline for the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)?
Human trafficking is a $32 billion dollar global industry, involving over 100,000 victims in the United States. After drugs and arms trafficking, it is the world’s most profitable criminal activity. It is estimated that an exploiter may earn as much as $650,000 in a year by exploiting as few as four children.
This training is highly recommended for resource families and group home staff as a first step in combatting the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in California. We are working to raise awareness to the crisis at hand and increasing your ability to identify commercially sexually exploited children.
You will leave with:
- Awareness about what and where this is happening in our state;
- Understanding why children in foster care are so vulnerable and how they can be affected by a trafficker;
- Identification of the warning signs; the ability to spot red flags that indicate a child is being sexually exploited and victimized.
