Access to employment opportunities that can provide economic security and stability is critical for the safety and long-term recovery of survivors of human trafficking. As survivors heal, victim service providers play a key role in connecting them to resources and opportunities to rebuild their lives.
Join Futures Without Violence and the Urban Institute to learn about local workforce system resources and strategies that can support the skill development and training needs of survivors. Understanding the complex networks of funding sources, programs, services, organizational missions, target populations, and labor market demands that make up local workforce systems can help your organization connect survivors to a broad range of employment, education and training, and support services. Presenters will describe the functions, people served, organizations involved, and key activities that make up local workforce systems so that victim service providers are better able to identify and link survivors of human trafficking to local employment and training opportunities.
