Human Trafficking and youth training May 17

Posted: Thursday, May 10, 2018

The Youth Services Bureau of Huntington County, in partnership with the Indiana Trafficking Victims Assistance Program and the Regional Anti-trafficking Network, will host free training on human trafficking in Indiana. The training will be held Thursday, May 17, from 4 to 6 p.m., at the Youth Services Bureau’s office located at 1344 Maple Drive.

This training is appropriate for DCS staff, social workers, parents, victim advocates, concerned citizens, pastors and those wanting to gain more information. The training will help define human trafficking in Indiana, help identify vulnerable youth populations, recognize red flags and help identify ways the community members can help.

“This is one of the most misunderstood crises facing our young people. The majority of people have a preconceived idea of what human trafficking is, which is one form of human trafficking, but not the manner in which our young people are finding themselves as victims,” stated Jan Williams, executive director.

To register for the training or to learn more about the program or human trafficking, contact the Youth Services Bureau at (260) 356-9681 or email questions to adm@ysbofhuntingtonco.org.
