Do you remember as a teenager, counting down the days until when you could finally get a job? Kids who have been victims of trafficking and youth at high risk of being trafficked have that same desire; there is dignity in work.
On this episode, Jarrett and Melania discuss how the Exploit No More workforce development program (The Elevated Chef) will provide job opportunities specifically for this population of youth. With a strengths based focus, youth will learn about and build on what is right with them, instead of what is wrong with them.
To start, there will be a food truck called, "The Elevated Chef" that we aim to launch in the summer of 2019!
The menu will consist of burgers made with grass fed beef and some of the most amazing chicken tenders that you'll ever have! With over 10 different sauces to choose from, your food truck experience is going to be elevated!
