Title: Building Sustainable Partnerships between Human Trafficking Services and Workforce Development Programs
Date: August 28, 2019
Time: 11:00-12:00pmPST/12:00-1:00pmMST/1:00-2:00pmCST/2:00– 3:00 pmEST
Partnerships between organizations serving human trafficking survivors and workforce development programs can improve survivors’ access to a range of high-quality education and employment opportunities. Building cross-sector partnerships to seamlessly and effectively enhance client services can be challenging when programs have different goals and methods of service delivery. For example, education and job training programs may not be grounded in trauma informed practices; victim service programs may not be aware of the outcome requirements education and job training programs must meet to remain accredited. This webinar will focus overcoming common challenges when building cross-sector collaborations between victim service providers and workforce development programs to help foster a strong foundation that mutually benefits collaborating agencies and survivors of human trafficking.
