This tool right here is the preferred communication method of human traffickers. There are numerous apps that predators can use to meet and build relationships with their victims under the anonymity of the Internet. Be aware of who your young people are talking to online and which methods of communication they are using. ⠀ ⠀ Our workshops teach all this and more. Learn how to prevent sexual exploitation, plus healthy relationship dynamics and online safety strategies that every young person should know.
