In this webinar, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) will define and discuss what child labor exploitation looks like in the United States and the ways that schools can help address it. Experts from the DOL will present data on the types of cases they are seeing, including young people working inherently dangerous jobs. Educators and school staff can be the first adults to be concerned about a youth being exploited in a work situation, so the webinar will highlight what roles schools have in identifying and intervening to get students out of dangerous situations. The webinar will also include a panel discussion to better understand the experiences of youth who have been exploited in a work environment and feature an expert with lived experience and experts working directly with youth in schools. The webinar will end with a live Q&A to respond to questions related to child labor exploitation and how schools can play a role in addressing it.
