Safe Harbor Presentation

Reminder: Safe Harbor, Sex Trafficking Presentation
September 22, 2016 | 8:am | Kanabec County Jail Training Room

Minnesota studies have found that 14-20% of homeless youth have engaged in survival sex (providing sex in exchange for food, shelter, money, etc.), and have been sexually exploited.

Locations where youth are recruited and captured into operations include schools, parks, shelters and youth programming, juvenile detention and treatment facilities, streets, bus stops, libraries, malls, and other places where youth congregate.

Minnesota Safe Harbor
No Wrong Door to Services for Sexually Exploited Youth

Although youth who are being sexually exploited regularly interact with numerous social service professionals their experiences are often overlooked or misidentified.

MN Safe Harbor creates a trauma-informed, victim centered system of response to identify child victims and move them towards recovery and healing.

Learn how you can become an important part of the Safe Harbor system of care in your region.

Presenters:
Lauren Ryan, J.D., Safe Harbor Director
Paula Schaefer, Safe Harbor Training Coordinator

5 Tips for Parents Before Your Kids Leave for College

Parents, now that your teen has graduated from high school, are you both ready for college?  Here are tips to help ease that transition:

1.   Contact the Dean of Students.  Learn about the alcohol and drug policies.  Will there be any seminars or training for the students?

2.   Set limits with your kids.  Let your teen know that college is a big investment and that they should make good choices.

3.   Keep talking and, more importantly, listening. Be open, honest, but don’t reveal all your college stories.

4.   Get ready for fall break.  Let your teen know your house rules when they come home for college break.

5.   Stick to your guns.   Be a parent first, not a friend.
