Event Dates

This is the third of a three-part Tribal Youth Resource Center Online Learning Event series focused on the needs and current service gaps of unsheltered and runaway Native youth across the country.

The three-part series will provide information on the correlation between unsheltered and runaway Native youth with being at a higher risk of becoming a victim of sex trafficking and human trafficking or becoming justice involved. The series will include structured presentations and interactive activities that will increase participants' knowledge of the issue, impacts of these issues on Native communities, and increase knowledge of prevention & interventions strategies to reduce the occurrence of unsheltered and runaway youth in Native communities.

Participants will also be provided tools and resources to support their work in the issue in their Native communities.
