Who We Are

The Envision Project: Specialized Services for Victims of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking delivers enhanced case management and specialized educational support, employment readiness, life skills, and personal development programming to youth in the Atlanta metropolitan area who have experienced child sex trafficking.

 

 

The Need

Trafficked youth benefit from opportunities to successfully engage in formal or alternative education, employment training to promote alternatives for economic self-sufficiency, preparation for independent living, and opportunities to enrich and enhance personal growth and community engagement.

 

 

What We Do

To address these complex needs and challenges, the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy, in collaboration with the Junior League of Atlanta, have implemented a comprehensive youth program targeting the key areas of educational support, employment readiness, life skills, and personal growth.

This program engages JLA leaders and volunteers in specific classes and experiential learning activities delivered in groups to previously trafficked youth. The principal goal of this component of the project is to provide an opportunity to develop skills and engage in experiences to support educational engagement and achievement, develop employment skills to support financial independence, promote life skills and preparation for independent living, and enhance and enrich personal growth and community connection.
