Human Trafficking & Its Impacts on Education and Employment Opportunities
Provided by: Futures Without Violence
 
Date: June 27, 2019
 
Time: 4:00 am ChsT

Workforce development services provide critical resources for survivors of human trafficking who are seeking to rebuild their lives, yet women, men, and children who have experienced sex or labor trafficking face unique obstacles that can create barriers to education, training, and employment. Understanding these complex barriers and adopting trauma-informed strategies to workforce solutions will not only improve services for survivors of human trafficking but will strengthen services for all clients.
 
Futures Without Violence will discuss the elements of human trafficking in the United States and how this crime can impact the success of survivors enrolled in workforce development programs. Faculty will cover the protections offered to survivors, and provide insight into the unique types of education and employment-related challenges that survivors may face after they are no longer in a trafficking situation, and offer basic strategies to improve employment outcomes for survivors.    
 
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
 
Identify elements of human trafficking and how they impact survivors’ ability to access and thrive in education and employment services;
Determine potential obstacles survivors face when seeking services from traditional education, training, and employment programs; and,
Summarize the basic types of protections and resources available to survivors of human trafficking that service providers can pursue to help improve survivors’ employment opportunities.
