This is the first training program of it’s kind! 

Why is our symposium a "first of it's kind?" Because of the variety of subject topics to be taught. This is not Human Trafficking 101 (although we will cover some of this in the first session). Million Kids has conducted thousands of hours of research on labor and sex trafficking, sextortion, social media exploitation and child abuse materials (aka child pornography). This symposium is designed to educate critical leaders in combating human exploitation. It is also open to the public.

The Mission of the Symposium:

To educate leaders on how to identify potential cases of exploitation and understand how to report these incidences.

The focus will be on prevention and intervention. Throughout the sessions, we will identify actionable programs that can assist in stopping the exploitation, empower at-risk youth, educate parents to identify signs of recruitment, and support law enforcement to stop the offender.

Based on real cases, subjects to be covered:

▪ Labor Trafficking

▪ Sex Trafficking

▪ Foreign National Trafficking

▪ Gang and Cartel Trafficking

▪ The Psychology of Grooming and Recruiting

▪ Sextortion - Individual and Sextortion Rings

▪ MMORPG - Online Gaming – Freemiums
