Equip Community, Systems And Professionals To Provide Holistic, Youth-Centered Supports
NCYL develops creative approaches to supporting youth impacted by CSE with responses that are tailored to local needs, resources, and priorities.
We learn more and more every year about how to best serve youth and families impacted by CSE - from survivor leaders, field research, community partners across the country and more. We distill what we have learned about the latest in practices and policies, pressure test them, refine and deploy practical tools and research that help cities, counties and communities better serve youth and their families who have been impacted by CSE.
Strong partnerships lead to learning and lasting success
We work closely with key stakeholders such as youth and survivors, community advocates, champions within the juvenile justice and child welfare systems, law enforcement, and health and mental health providers to develop creative approaches to support youth impacted by CSE with responses that are tailored to local needs, resources, and priorities.
Over the years, we’ve worked with a range of counties - big and small, resource-rich and resource-stretched, urban and rural - to develop county-specific protocols that outline how they respond to youth impacted by CSE.
We partner on research projects to improve data collection and to evaluate the effectiveness of services and programs designed for youth impacted by exploitation.
