The Sexually Exploited Youth Community Coalition (SEYCC) is a grassroots, cross-sector community group that is dedicated to finding solutions to the issue of sexual exploitation of youth in Winnipeg. For more than a decade, the group has advocated for and informed the development of supports and services for vulnerable youth in the city (Winnipeg) — especially Indigenous girls, who are among the most vulnerable to experiencing sexual exploitation. In order to document the history of the Coalition, its successes and challenges, perspectives on best practices in working with youth and the vision for the future of the SEYCC, interviews were conducted with 24 Coalition members and individuals with lived experience of sexual exploitation.
