Youth Prevention Program in Laval – Methodological support for the development of the sexual exploitation of minors’ service corridor in Laval

This project is intended to help involved actors acquire knowledge and skills to be able to assess the services provided regarding the sexual exploitation of minors in Laval. To this end, the ICPC has developed several methodological guides. A first guide focuses on consultative techniques and includes instructions and information on preparation, progress and analysis of focus groups. The second guide focuses on coordination assessment among different actors and services and addresses (1) the analysis of actors, allowing the development of an actors and services index in sexual exploitation, among other things, and updating some characteristics, (2) the analysis of coordination, allowing the creation of actions and relations maps between actors in order to assess relationships between actors and their concrete actions and, (3) the analysis of the continuum of services, allowing to identify their gaps and strengths.

Subsequently, through training workshops, field actors are trained in the use of these guides so as to equip and enable them to carry out their own evaluation of the service corridor when it comes to sexual exploitation.

Finally, the ICPC will provide them with support and follow-up in the implementation of the methodological guides, analysis and assessment report writing to answer their questions and guide them in their actions.
