Youth who have run away from home or who are homeless are at particular risk of sexual exploitation. Providers serving runaway and homeless youth should be aware of how to identify and protect youth who are being sexually exploited. This workshop will provide an overview of the intersection of youth homelessness and sexual exploitation as well as policies and practices providers can use to help identify and protect exploited youth, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.
