Teens Against Human Trafficking

Spirit of Life Church to Host Guest Speaker from "Teens Against Human Trafficking"

Apple Valley's Spirit of Life Presbyterian Church will host a second guest speaker, Shannon Schott, on the problem of human trafficking.  The event is scheduled for Monday, July 31, at 7 p.m.

Ms. Schott, formerly of Eagan, is lead program specialist with Teens Against Human Trafficking, a program of the Iowa nonprofit YSS, Inc.  She will introduce attendees to human trafficking in the Midwest, with a focus on the youth perspective.

Participants will learn about the process of recruitment, grooming and control and what indicators may point to human trafficking.  Attendees will also learn what risk factors make young people more vulnerable to trafficking.  Finally, Ms. Scott will describe efforts to prevent human trafficking and to identify victims in schools and youth-serving organizations.
