Do you know what my job looks as the Program Manager for the Justice Coalition?
What it can look like:
– Training groups in education and prevention
– Social media content creation– Direct services for youth who are at-risk for exploitation
– Accompanying a minor in court when facing the offender- Successfully practicing harm reduction methods
– Specialized safety plans
– Participating in specialized courts
Can it be hard to see some of the kiddos we work with take off from placement?
Absolutely, it can.
Some days it feels like we are not doing enough … however just as the rays of sunlight peek through a cloudy day … I am blessed to see those rays …
Like a youth wanting to reconnect immediately after being on the run for 4 months, or another youth wanting to still connect after family reunification has been successful.
I love my job
I am thankful for the community partners
