Work Group 4: Keeping At-Risk Youth Safe

Chaired by Children’s Advocacy Centers of Georgia (Naeshia McDowell) and Comfort in the Storm (Kathy Butler)

  • Work Group 4 is focused on adapting a human trafficking peer-to-peer education curriculum for foster youth participating in Independent Living Programs. The curriculum will be centered around giving youth information and tools to identify and define what human trafficking is and how to seek help if they or someone they know is at risk. The workgroup is ultimately interested in using the curriculum to facilitate a one-day peer-to-peer mini-conference for youth.
  • 2022 Initiatives:
    • Work Group 4 is currently conducting an environmental scan to get an idea of the types of human trafficking peer-to-peer education curricula available.
    • Work Group 4 is developing a youth program for youth in independent living programs that are a risk for HT.
      • Currently developing a webinar series to interact with these youth through a virtual platform.
