Transitions helps graduates of the Red River College/Ndinawe Child & Youth Care Certificate Program to transition into careers as child and youth care workers. These graduates have experienced trafficking and/or sexual exploitation. Through weekly personal and professional development sessions, Transitions participants help each other deal with the stress and issues that arise in their work. This program is essential, because work in this field can be triggering for those who have experienced trafficking and other forms of violence.
Grant amount: $125,000 over 5 years
