February 22nd is National Human Trafficking Day.
NCJWC Toronto aims to work to increase awareness of Human Trafficking both locally & nationally, with the goal of preventing victimization.
We work with partners to create and facilitate conversations and helpful resources to arm parents, grandparents, educators and caregivers with information to have hard but important conversations within their families.
You can access the resources below and share them broadly. We are happy to speak with you or your group as well. Just fill out our Contact Us form.
Start building mutual trust with your child
Let’s face it, our children are online more than ever. As parents, grandparents, teachers and friends, we all want to keep them safe. But, we don’t always know how we can, what to say, to ask and what to look for.
It’s hard to know where to start.
Start with sitting down and having a conversation – letting your child know that no matter what you will be there for them.
This allows the child to feel safe contacting the adult when he or she feels at risk. And for the adult to assure the child that he or she will be there without judgement no matter what, where or when.
By reading and signing this document together, it allows for open discussion and may establish a stronger sense of trust between the child and the adult. It may even avert possible victimization.
You can start building mutual trust now. Download the document and take the pledge together.
