This presentation was delivered on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, as part of the free monthly webinar series Friends for Youth's Mentoring Institute with special guest presenter Emily Turner.
This presentation will focus on educating ourselves about modern day slavery occurring in our communities and how we can utilize our mentoring programs, mentoring relationships, and community partnerships to raise awareness, generate activism, and think preventively. Our special guest speaker, Emily Turner, will identify modern day slavery and coinciding issues related to victim vulnerability and behavioral risks. This information is vital in understanding all forms of sexual exploitation and how mentoring, as an evidence-based prevention strategy, has the potential to not only decrease demand and rescue those enslaved, but also to prevent youth from becoming involved into vulnerable situations that may contribute to sexual exploitation.
