Enhancing awareness of the risks of exploitation through education on sexting, sextortion, grooming, pressured sexual activity, online sexual predation and exploitation, and online resource distribution.
Increase awareness about how to keep safe while also decreasing at-risk behaviors.
Introducing effective strategies for reducing harm to participants and those connected to them.
Enhancing protective factors through connection to resources, enhanced community engagement, increasing natural or chosen support networks, and access to cultural supports.
