Training

We provide agency and individual training on the identification and intervention of human trafficking and symptoms of trauma associated with gender-based violence. In our agency training, we take a specific look at the ways in which trafficking will appear in the agency.

Free Virtual Empowerment Workshop

At Collaborative Community Solutions, we believe that one way we can prevent human trafficking is by empowering young girls and non binary youth at a young age. We provide engaging workshops that are based on naming the tools that we have in place and discussing gender stereotypes while fostering healthy mind and body connection.
