 Understanding “the Life”-An Interactive Simulation of the Path into Trafficking

An ninety minute interactive group experience which takes participants through the journey of potential teen victims in Indiana. The map starts with educating on risk factors and then leads the group through discussion around where trafficking might happen, how it might happen and then what is the role of agencies like Ascent 121 in the restorative process. It is geared toward smaller groups (up to 20 total) to provide awareness, discussion and continued action through offering practical ways to engage. Learn more about this simulation.
