Add to Calendar 2018-05-24 15:00:00 2018-05-24 15:00:00 Human Trafficking: A Rural Perspective Rural communities have particular challenges regarding human trafficking. These challenges come as a result of factors such as the isolated, geography and transportation routes that facilitate human trafficking and allow it to go unnoticed. This isolation further challenges opportunities for prevention and intervention services. The lack of economic opportunities in many rural areas also make individuals more vulnerable to trafficking. This webinar will provide information and resources to assist school districts in developing policies, procedures, evidence-based prevention programs and practices as well as focused services for those who are victims or at risk of being trafficked. Participants in this webinar will learn about: Data on the prevalence of the human trafficking of children in rural communities and schools; The risk factors and indicators of the human trafficking of children, particularly in the context of schools; and, Evidenced-based and promising prevention and intervention programs and practices that use a public health approach and can be implemented in school and communities   Register for this webinar, here. noreply@air.org America/New_York public
