PATHWAY TO EMPLOYMENT
Often individuals recovering from the life of human trafficking are left without resources, traditional work experience, and even left with a criminal history from the demands of a trafficker or for mere survival
This reality makes it extremely challenging to get a fair chance at employment, to gain access to professional and personal development skills, or to be able to build trust and healthy relationships.
When no prospect for gainful employment is available or no personal support structure, these individuals will often return to the streets or to a trafficker as the only means of support they can see
Communication and confidence skills are critical to move forward. Job opportunities are essential to move on. Dale Carnegie, author of How to Win Friends and Influence People, developed a program to address these challenges and his training approach has become recognized worldwide for its effectiveness in developing personal and professional skills. Our WAY2WORK program begins with a series of Dale Carnegie seminars developed with the unique challenges and realities of survivors and their advocates in mind

By contributing to a scholarship you will ensure the continued path forward and make a positive impact on someone's life

“One of the things that impacted me the most from this course is that I learned techniques to communicate with my mother with whom I do not have a relationship with ... so that I can get to know who she is and be able to start a more loving relationship with her.
I recommend anyone who is interested in learning how to communicate in a healthier, effective and cordial way with others, to take this course."
