Training and Assistance

At MISSSEY, we envision a world free from exploitation and believe an informed and engaged community brings us closer to realizing this reality.

MISSSEY’s Training Institute provides practical, relevant, and dynamic instruction and technical assistance to community stakeholders and all youth serving organizations. Well over 10,000 youth serving professionals have been trained to identify and help CSEC since MISSSEY’s inception as the county’s premiere anti-trafficking organization.

Call 510-251-2070 or email training@misssey.org to discuss technical assistance for your organization.
