They share how our in-person session greatly complements the training they already have in place. Many managers also tell us that employees appreciate the opportunity to ask questions and feel supported that they can speak openly about the issue of sex trafficking.

Here's what else participants had to say.


“The training delivered by Covenant House was hugely impactful for our associates. With facts and data collected in Toronto, the GTA and Canada, the training resonated much more deeply. I highly recommend this training. The information—although disturbing—is delivered in a sensitive and engaging manner.”
- Andrea Sutherland, Human Resources Director, Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville

“Training for hotel employees on this highly important topic may be available online, however; that cannot compare to the value of the hour invested by Covenant House staff. They were extremely flexible in offering availability for any time frame and willing to repeat according to our staffing challenges. The presentation is powerful but made even more valuable by having this Prevention Development and Training Specialist ensure that the audience understands their potential role.”
- Kay Koot, General Manager, Residence Inn Downtown Toronto/Entertainment District
