Research in Child and Youth Care

The OACYC believes it is important to support research in the field of Child and Youth Care.  We will list studies here when the researcher is requesting participation from our members. 

We invite you to take part in a research study being conducted by Melissa Teles, who is a professor at George Brown College, in partnership with the OACYC: Human Trafficking for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation: Elevating Capacity in Child and Youth Practice. 

The purpose of this study is two-fold. First, the study will aim to determine current capacity in the child and youth sector to both identify and provide meaningful support to youth who have been trafficked. Second, this study will explore best practices to identify and support youth who have been trafficked and those who are at risk of being trafficked.

The information gathered in this online survey will help determine how equipped youth workers are to identify and support youth who have been trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation. This will help us to decide how  to focus future education and training programs.

This project has been approved by the George Brown College Research Ethics Board, if you have any questions email: ResearchEthics@georgebrown.ca

This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
