Economic Empowerment Coordinator
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 support, youth can overcome the circumstances of their exploitation and thrive.
The Economic Empowerment Coordinator provides one-on-one and group career readiness and employment support to youth who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation. Under the supervision of the Engagement Services Manager , the Economic Empowerment Coordinator is responsible for conducting outreach to form small cohorts of participating youth, meeting with them to assist in their personal and professional development. The EEC will engage in evidence-based and promising practices for ensuring career readiness, including facilitating workshops that cultivate attitudes and behaviors that lead to self-actualization, self regulation and a shift in consciousness about their ability to change their circumstances, themselves and our society. In addition to providing group and one on one support for traditional career readiness skills, the EEC must be able to provide the same support for youth’s social emotional growth and development. Additionally, the Economic Empowerment Coordinator will build alliances with potential employment sites and partners to facilitate job placement. Must be able to market, advertise, and collaborate with employers and potential employers, government agencies, stakeholders and strategic MISSSEY partners.
