promoting employment opportunities for survivors of trafficking
The Promoting Employment Opportunities for Survivors of Trafficking (PEOST) Training and Technical Assistance Project, in cooperation with the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), aims to increase access to quality educational and employment opportunities for survivors of human trafficking. In partnership with a working group of experts with both lived and professional experience, training and technical assistance is provided to victim service providers, with a special emphasis on current OVC human trafficking grantees, as well as workforce development programs in order to:
- Develop and/or strengthen partnerships between and among victim service providers, local workforce development, and educational service providers; and
- Build the capacity of victim service providers and workforce development programs to enhance services in order to promote greater access to quality employment opportunities for survivors of human trafficking.
To request technical assistance in supporting economic empowerment for survivors of building a partnership in your community, please contact email@example.com.
