Event Description:

Shatter the Silence II: Identifying, Rescuing and Rehabilitating Sexually Exploited Children, Adolescents and Young Adults

8:30 a.m.-3:45 p.m.
April 4
Performance Center, inside the Natali Student Center

Students from Cal U’s Department of Social Work have been conducting an extensive community outreach effort to bring the National Association of Missing and Exploited Children’s “Campaign Against Sexual exploitation” to communities throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.

They will report on their progress, and hear from experts in human trafficking and sexual exploitation, at Shatter the Silence II, a summit set for 8:30 a.m.-3:45 p.m. April 4 in the Performance Center inside the Natali Student Center at Cal U. See the full schedule

Shatter the Silence grew out of a service-learning project, and Cal U students are playing a big part in spreading the message ‘Not here, not anywhere’ throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.”

At the summit students also will introduce a non-traumatic “safety song” for young children and a T-shirt logo for use in prevention education with older children and teens.

The problem of exploitation

Pennsylvania is considered a “pass through” state for human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

The problem is not confined to urban areas. Children, adolescents and young adults in rural and small-town communities, especially those along interstate highways, are especially vulnerable to involuntary recruitment into the sex-for-profit industry, often a component of organized crime.

The summit at Cal U

The summit is presented by Cal U’s Assessment, Intervention and Training Center, in partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers.

The free event is open to individuals, community stakeholders and human service providers, including social workers, therapists, teachers and law enforcement personnel. Continuing education units are available for licensed social workers.

Admission is free, but registration is required. A free box lunch will be provided.

To register for the summit, leave a message at 724-938-5910 or send e-mail.

California University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Social Work offers bachelor’s degree and master’s degree programs.
