The Survivor Development Program: How it Works and What's Included
Holistic ApprenticeshipDuring the first six months of employment, survivors have access to six months of on-the-job training which includes courses on trauma, life skills and employability skills. At the end of the six months, each survivor's individual talents are assessed and she is placed in one of five areas (marketing, sales, administration/finance, operations, inventory) best suited to her abilities.
Survivor AdvocacyThrough the entire Survivor Development Program, each survivor is provided with a survivor mentor, monthly on-site care management meetings, crisis intervention, and psycho-educational groups. Further, survivors are given access to off-site care management services and provided with referrals to various community resources. This combination of services gives survivors the opportunity to move forward in their healing journey so they have the freedom of choice for their futures.
