Washington Trafficking Prevention Training

Washington Trafficking Prevention is hosting an online training to discuss online exploitation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Studies show that youth are being contacted more frequently only by people they don’t know and are at risk of engaging in riskier behaviors during this crisis.

The training will focus on skills to navigate complicated online spaces as safely as possible. Join Kyra Doubek, executive director at Washington Trafficking Prevention, for a presentation on online safety. The training was created for parents, guardians, caregivers and family members.

The presentation will cover:

  • An overview of what exploitation is and how it happens online.
  • Statistics and information about how this kind of exploitation affects kids and teens.
  • Practical tips and "how-tos" about online safety and privacy.
  • Ways to have tough conversations with the kids and teens in your life.
  • Space for parents to share with each other their experience, tips and lessons learned about online safety.

There is a $10 fee for the training, but scholarships are available.
