Gather information on how to construct a collaborative community action team to serve high-risk missing and child sex trafficking victims. Explore how a missing child’s path to becoming a sex trafficking victim intersects with the child protection, law enforcement and juvenile justice systems. Identify opportunities within those systems for prevention and engagement. Training includes building an action team; developing victim recovery tools and interviewing approaches for victims. Examine the complex, layered exploitation these victims endure and how the trafficker and buyer capitalize on this victimization. Discover how traffickers recruit, groom and maintain control of their victims and what motivates the buyer to purchase a child.
