The Intersection of Teen Dating Violence, Human Trafficking, and Vulnerable Youth
Wednesday, February 23, 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EST
Category: Virtual Training

The Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) invites you to join the virtual panel discussion: The Intersection of Teen Dating Violence, Human Trafficking, and Vulnerable Youth.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in one year, nearly 1 in 11 female and approximately 1 in 14 male high school students report having experienced physical dating violence; and about 1 in 8 female and 1 in 26 male high school students report having experienced sexual dating violence. While teen dating violence impacts youth nationwide, youth from racial/ethnic and sexual minority groups are disproportionally affected by all forms of violence, including dating violence. Violence in an adolescent relationship sets the stage for future violence and victimization, including youth becoming victims of human trafficking.

This virtual panel will discuss the impact of teen dating violence among youth from underserved populations and its intersection with human trafficking. Panelists will also share their collective expertise, lessons from the field, and practical recommendations to build awareness and prevent these incidents in our communities.
