These programs should also seek to increase awareness and identification of sex and/or labor trafficking involving youth by educating court stakeholders and through community outreach efforts.

Under the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act, a victim of trafficking is defined as a person who has been subjected to a "severe form of trafficking in persons," which, as defined in 22 U.S.C.

§ 7102(11), means— • sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age; or • the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.
