Please join The Indiana Youth Services Association for the 1st Annual Human Trafficking Statewide Training Conference! The day's events include a keynote introduction by a human trafficking survivor turned advocate, Aubrey Lloyd followed by workshops, lunch and a survivor panel with guest Heather Sewell and Tebogo (Tebby) Kaisara. They are both survivors of human trafficking who are willing to share their story in hopes to enlighten and help make providers more aware of signs so frequently overlooked.

This conference offers three tracks specific for law enforcement, healthcare providers and educators. The specialized tracks are designed to help identify and react to human trafficking in each setting. 

Community Response Track (Educators and School Administrators only)

Understanding human trafficking in Indiana and the scope of the issue among youth; recognizing risk factors that lead to heightened vulnerability and red flags that may indicate a trafficking situation; understanding reasons victims don’t self-identify or reach out for help; identifying trafficked youth and reporting tips; connecting survivors with resources and services.

Law Enforcement Track (For law enforcement only)

Defining human trafficking under federal and state law; understanding the scope of the problem among Indiana youth; recognizing red flags that may indicate a trafficking situation within a law enforcement context; learning reporting protocol; understanding trauma-informed best practices for interacting with potential victims; discussing evidence collection and charging considerations; learning available resources for survivors.
