Registration Open - Ottawa Training Session

Registration Open - Ottawa Training Session

Registration is open for our next 5-day anti-human trafficking training session on "Understanding and Working with Children and Youth who have been Sexually Exploited" hosted by the Alliance Against Modern Slavery in partnership with the Ontario Trillium Foundation. It will take place in Ottawa in from May 11-15, 2015.


Approximately 90% of the Sexual Exploitation / Human Trafficking Curriculum entitled Understanding and Working with Children and Youth who have been Sexually Exploited was written by trafficked survivors from Manitoba. The module we are using, now with a focus on Ontario and particular city and region contexts within the province of Ontario, was written based on Adult Learning Theory and Principles. Large portions of the curriculum include examples and stories that are used to link the content to people’s practices. Over 75% of the content has exercises for the participants to complete (both group and individual) so that they may verify the new information or skills learned. Return demonstrations are used in order to ensure understanding of the content, and are most often done in a group modality in order to allow time for the group reports.

The curriculum was written with law enforcement, front line service providers, child welfare workers and social workers in mind.

The training has been very well received across Canada and the United States. Comments and the benefits listed on evaluations include:

  • “I think this training was so excellent due to the fact that it was taught by the experts, the people that work with this every day. It made it more real; Beyond expectations; Willing to go the extra mile in building supports”
  • “Excellent; Provoking/insightful; Content flowed very well; Excellent content; The best training I’ve ever been to so far”
  • “Legislative was very good, use it a lot in my job; I’ve learned so much”

Registration Fee: $200 for the entire week
