The Promoting Employment Opportunities for Survivors of Human Trafficking Economic Empowerment Learning Series is a 6 week peer learning session focused on bringing together OVC Human Trafficking Program grantees.
Participants will explore existing knowledge, economic empowerment best practices and gaps within the following topics—
- trauma-informed work readiness,
- career exploration,
- building self-efficacy of survivors,
- digital literacy,
- financial literacy and asset building, and
- entrepreneurships and mutual aid.
Through these conversations, participants will explore ways in which victim service agencies can develop new or expand existing economic empowerment programming that truly addresses the barriers to thriving for survivors. Sessions will take place virtually every Thursday from October 14, 2021, through November 18, 2021, from 1:00–3:30 p.m. eastern time.
