Introducing the course

Welcome to the Supporting Youth Experiencing Exploitation certificate course. This course contains information, insight, and best practices for supporting youth and their involvement in the sex industry. The central focus of this course is about supporting youth who are experiencing exploitation in the sex industry. However, as will be discussed throughout the following modules, youth’s experiences take a variety of forms, some are exploitative, some are not.

The first couple modules will provide you with “Guiding Principles.” These principles are essential for genuinely and appropriately supporting youth. We emphasize that there is no one-size-fits-all practice of supporting youth, flexibility and creativity are key for successful support.

We have created this tip sheet to provide you with detailed information on the technical aspects of the course, please read it through before beginning:

The content of this course can be intense and we encourage you to take care of yourself throughout. Take breaks, skip information and come back to it, and hold off on activities that feel overwhelming as you see fit. As mentioned in the tip sheet – please note that only the module final quizzes and the course final quiz is for marks – all other activities and quizzes are encouraged but optional.
