The Five Career Paths at Rethreaded

Rethreaded offers viable and creative work to women affected by the sex trade, and provides survivors with an opportunity to be who they were created to be. Our employees are coming out of addiction, violence, human trafficking and prostitution. Options for these women are often very limited due to criminal records, little to no work history, and heavy prejudice within communities. Far too often survivors escape the bondage of the sex trade only to find they are unable to secure meaningful employment.
We are growing, and so are the career opportunities for survivor employees. We are proud to announce five career paths that allow these women’s talents and strengths to shine, so that they are able to go out into the world with marketable skills and experience.
