Stop Exploiting Youth (SEY)Supporting youth who are sexually exploited or at high risk of sexual exploitation
Stop Exploiting Youth (SEY)
Stop Exploiting Youth provides intensive outreach services for youth who are sexually exploited or at high risk of sexual exploitation. We support them in exiting exploitation and recognizing and engaging in healthy relationships.
The program also raises community awareness on the issue and provides community education, workshops and groups.
Stop Exploiting Youth is a program of our Youth Resource Centre (YRC), which is a one-stop-shop for youth and their families who want a helping hand to connect with each other and/or the community.

Stop Exploiting Youth Rally
The SEY program and Abbotsford Community Action Team participate in an annual, community-focused rally to raise awareness of youth sexual exploitation, during Stop the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Youth Awareness Week in March.
“”We need to be aware that sexual exploitation of our youth is happening in our community, although it’s often hidden behind closed doors. It can affect any family regardless of culture, religion, or socioeconomic background. With awareness, we can reduce the numbers and put an end to the sexual exploitation of our youth.
