Training Description

**This is a two-day long training**

**Participants must attend both days**

“The Empowerment Project” is a CSE intervention curriculum. It consists of 4 workbooks with 5 chapters in each workbook. The curriculum is based on the Stages of Change model where the earlier workbooks are focused on helping youth edit exploitation while the later workbooks are focused on adjusting to life outside of the commercial sex industry. Throughout the workbooks, youth will hear from CSE survivors and what they learned on their journey. The two-day facilitator training will teach participants how to facilitate the curriculum with youth and young adults. This is a two-day training. CSEC 101 and 102 are prerequisites.
