Los perpetradores convierten a los jóvenes en víctimas cuando pagan, o prometen pagar, dinero, productos o servicios a un joven o a su chulo (“pimp”) a cambio de actos sexuales o entretenimiento.

When young people seek help from an emergency shelter funded by the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), nearly 9 times out of 10 they cite “family dynamics” among the reasons they left home.
