Under this year's theme, “Mission Possible: A Safe Space for Our Youth”, the event focused on informing youth (ages 10-16) about human trafficking and protecting youth, parents and guardians from becoming victims.
Licensed social workers and community leaders presented on how pre-teens and teens can express emotions in a healthy and productive way when encountering stressful situations. Activities gave tips on how to make healthy choices that will help build self confidence when engaging with peers and people they admire.
There were sessions focused on defining Human Trafficking to our youth attendees, how to be more aware of signs of human trafficking and self-esteem and things around you that can affect ones self-image and self-esteem.
A special thank you to our guest speakers: Ascent 121, Pathways International, Cynecqua Goodridge, Olisha Mafu, and Herbert Mutumba.
