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-focused approaches. We recognize the crucial voices of survivors in facilitating healing in victims of commercial sexual exploitation and the value of young people empowering other young people. 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 support, youth can overcome the circumstances of their exploitation and thrive.
The Sisters Transforming and Rising (STaR) Center provides a safe environment for female-identified vulnerable youth and survivors of commercial sexual exploitation to learn new life skills, build peer relationships, access resources, receive crisis support, and build internal resources that reduce their vulnerabilities to being victimized by the commercial sex industry. The STaR Center Coordinator ensures that programming in the STaR Center is gender-responsive, culturally relevant, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and developmentally appropriate (GCTSD), as well as informed by survivors of commercial sexual exploitation. Under the supervision of the Engagement Services Manager, the STaR Center Coordinator is responsible for developing and maintaining STaR center services, including peer support and transition services to youth accessing the STaR center. The STaR Center Coordinator serves as a role model for youth accessing the space and leads all activities and support services for the Center. The STaR Center Coordinator involves the community in the STaR center as volunteers and plays a critical role in MISSSEY's outreach and volunteer program. Additionally, the STaR Center Coordinator works within the limitations of MISSSEY’s resources and in compliance with grants, contracts, and agency policies and procedures.
