MISSSEY Training for Educators on CSEC
January 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Alliance for Girls (AFG) has been working in partnership with Oakland Unified School District for over five years. Through this partnership, the Girls Collaborative was established in 2017. The Collaborative convenes district, school, and community leadership to coordinate and leverages existing resources to support girls of color in OUSD so they can accomplish their personal and professional dreams. In response to educators’ interest and need for CSEC (commercially sexually exploited children) training, MISSSEY and AFG partnered to provide educators with a free three-hour workshop on Tuesday, January 21, 1-3 pm, at 1000 Broadway, Ste. 300, Oakland, CA.
We have a few spaces available for interested members to attend. If you are interested, register here. The wonderful Andrea Diaz, Training and Prevention Manager at MISSSEY, will be leading the workshop. More details below:
