In Canada, thousands of teenagers run away, wander off, or simply go missing every year.
Most return home. Those who don't experience the brutality of street life where the end result is often exploitation and human trafficking.
They quickly become the street youth of our cities. Some you see. Most you don't.
The 'YES' Initiative (Youth Exploitation Stops) exists to shine the light on these unseen youth, through building awareness and engaging the local church in ministering to this hidden and highly vulnerable sector of society.
This will be done through speaking engagements of John Cassells as well as the outreach and educational activities of the MET Task force (Men Ending Trafficking) committed to inform and engage the church.
