Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)


Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)

Stanford Sierra Youth & Families employs Youth Advocates (individuals with lived experience) to serve our CSEC (Commercial Sexually Exploited Children) population. The core framework of the program focuses on implementing the Seeking Safety Curriculum, emphasizing a harm reduction approach, and collaborating with agency team members and external partners to support youth ages ten years and older who have, are, or are at risk of exploitation. Our program’s youth advocates use their lived experience as well as trauma-informed practices to address the youth’s individual needs while also building upon their strengths, skills, and developing their connections with natural support systems and community.

Vulnerable Groups:
  • Youth in foster care

  • Youth identifying with the LGBTQ+ community

  • Youth on probation

  • Youth who have experienced unstable/inconsistent environments

  • Generational trauma around sexual trauma
