Join the Greater Orlando Human Trafficking Task Force, Inc. along with 2 of our member agencies on Wednesday, May 9th at 7:00pm at Millennium Middle School for a special presentation on internet safety and helping our children stay safe online, as well as a presentation intended for adults on child sexual abuse and human trafficking.

Internet Safety Presentation by Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health: This presentation is intended for middle and high school aged students as well as their parents/guardians. Sex Trafficking is a part of the discussion.

Today’s world is a connected world, and access to the Internet can be a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, there are also predators who may try to harm you. In order to be safe online, it is important to be aware of the dangers. Many are confident that they know how to be safe online, but sometimes cyberbullies or predators specifically target young people and it is hard to remember possible consequences in the moment. This presentation will provide a forum to think through and discuss ways to stay safe online.

Stewards of Children by the Children’s Advoacy Center, Orlando Health: This presenation is intended for parents, teachers, and other adults who work with children.

Stewards of Children is a prevention training program that teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program is designed for organizations that serve youth and for individuals concerned about the safety of children. It is the only nationally distributed, evidence based program proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes, and change child protective behaviors.

Each presentation will begin at 7:00pm and will last approximately one hour. Students are able to attend the Internet Safety Session while their parents attend the Stewards of Children, or parents are welcome to join their children at the Internet Safety Session.

This event is free and open to anyone interested, not just residents of Seminole County, FL.
