MISSSEY, Inc. (Motivating, Inspiring, Supporting and Serving Sexually Exploited Youth) is a community-based organization founded in 2007 to respond to the epidemic of commercial sexual exploitation in Alameda County, CA. Our mission is to provide services to commercially sexually exploited youth and to work for systemic change with the youth we serve. Our service model is focused on healing through trauma-informed, survivor-centered, and youth development approaches. We recognize that the voices of survivors in facilitating healing in victims of commercial sexual exploitation is crucial and the value of young people empowering other young people is essential. Our work with youth is a partnership, helping them transition from victim to survivor to leader, encouraging their long-term stability and success in whatever path they choose. MISSSEY believes that with the right opportunities and supports, youth can overcome the circumstances of their exploitation and thrive.
The Career Readiness Specialist provides one-on-one and group career readiness support to youth who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation. Under the supervision of the Director of Engagement Services, the Career Readiness Specialist (CRS) is responsible for meeting with youth to assist in their personal and professional development. Will engage evidence-based and promising practices for ensuring career readiness, including facilitating workshops that cultivate attitudes and behaviors that lead to self-actualization and a shift in consciousness about their ability to change their circumstances, themselves and our society. Additionally, the CRS will build alliances with potential employment sites to facilitate job placement.
