Human Trafficking for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation: Elevating Capacity in Child and Youth Practice
Lead researcher: Melissa Teles, Professor, Child and Youth Care, George Brown College
We invite you to take part in this important research project being conducted jointly by the OACYC and George Brown.

The purpose of this study is to:

a. Determine current capacity in the child and youth sector in the identification and provision of meaningful support to youth who have been trafficked

b. Explore best practices to identify and support youth who have been trafficked and those who are at risk of being trafficked.

The information gathered in this online survey will help determine how equipped youth workers are to identify and support youth who have been trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation. This will help us to decide how to focus future education and training programs.

This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

This project has been approved by the George Brown College Research Ethics Board.
