youthSpark is pleased to announce a first of its kind study to assess the size and nature of child sex trafficking as it affects boys in metro Atlanta. Today, we know how child sex trafficking affects girls in metro Atlanta, and as a result, people always ask, "what about the boys?" Our hope is to have the same depth of knowledge on the way this issue impacts boys, and research is the first step.During the preliminary phase of this research, we will evaluate multiple potential methodologies to determine what is most likely to work. We will consider a variety of options, including network-estimation via mobile device feedback and in-person peer interviews. It is likely that multiple approaches will eventually be combined together. Upon completion of this preliminary phase, we will summarize the findings and recommended approach for next steps. youthSpark will collaborate with local and state agencies to review the findings. Assuming the main phase is promising, we will proceed with the study. If the main phase of the study is undertaken, the results will be available for public use. The initial phase of this study is being funded by a local foundation.
