Time: 4:00 am – 5:00 am ChST
For many survivors of trafficking, employment opportunities and income insecurity are the immediate and primary concerns upon exiting a trafficking situation. While employment is key to the long-term well-being of trafficking survivors, survivors regularly face challenges in accessing high-quality jobs and careers. While there are opportunities that survivors of trafficking victims can pursue to gain the information, skills, and connections needed to secure safe and sustainable employment, these workforce development programs often lack the training and practices to effectively support survivors of trafficking with complex barriers.
To improve employment outcomes for survivors of trafficking, the Promoting Employment Opportunities for Survivors of Human Trafficking project seeks to help victim service providers identify relevant federal, state, and local workforce development resources in a community; foster collaboration between victim service providers and workforce development programs; and share best practices and models for training workforce development programs on trauma and human trafficking. This webinar will introduce OVC victim service grantees to this new training and technical assistance project, what resources and tools will be developed, and opportunities for training and technical assistance.
