SCIP (School Community Intervention and Prevention) is partnering with Lincoln Public Schools, Bryan Independence Center, and the Lancaster Prevention Coalition to put on a community awareness series with valuable presentations about how to support the health and well-being of our community’s youth. These events are open to parents, students, school professionals, and community members. No registration is required.
Their upcoming seminar, Human Trafficking & Our Youth, is happening on Thursday, February 28 at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in the Multipurpose Room at Scott Middle School. The presenter, Stephanie Olson, is a speaker, author, and the CEO/president of the Set Me Free Project. She has extensive experience in the study of human trafficking prevention education and social media safety. Stephanie will discuss what human trafficking and sex trafficking is, and the factors that make individuals most vulnerable to sex trafficking. She will also address the dangers present on social media sites, how to spot a trafficking victim and what to do if you see a victim, and how to prevent our youth from becoming victims of sex trafficking.
