Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $798,000)

Through this project, YouthCare will be able to enhance its education and employment services to those who are victims and survivors of human trafficking. YouthCare will continue to provide comprehensive services to victims and survivors of labor or sex trafficking in Seattle/King County, who are 12- 24 years old, including males, females and youth/young adults who identify as gender non- conforming/non-binary, including US citizens, foreign nationals, legal permanent residents, and minors. The main outcome of this proposal is to support youth in achieving economic empowerment and independence through the advancement of education and attainment of employment and employable skills. Staff members will offer options of services to the client after completing an assessment on education and job readiness. The proposed project also supports community training activities with local law enforcement, schools, juvenile justice, and other stakeholders. These trainings will increase the regional capacity to identify youth and young adult victims of trafficking, provide developmentally appropriate interventions, and refer victims to YouthCare.
