Survivor Support Group
Mission 21 provides a Survivor Support Group for youth survivors of sex trafficking.
Group activities include: opportunities to process past experiences, life and work skills classes, art and music activities, opportunities to meet with other survivors, opportunities to set goals and encourage each other to make healthy choices.
All youth participants must complete an application with a Mission 21 youth advocate and sign a Program Safety Contract before attending group.
New referrals who are 18 and older must be enrolled in school or be working towards finishing school. New referrals who are 18 and older and have completed school, will be referred to an appropriate agency that works with adults.
The Survivor Support Group meets the 1st, 3rd, and 5th weeks of every month. Transportation within the Rochester city limits is provided.
1 on 1 Mentorship
Mission 21 mentors are available for youth survivors of sex trafficking who would like support and encouragement on making positive changes in their lives to reach healthy goals. This extra-support service is for girls who recognize there is a problem and are ready to commit to a plan to change their lives.
Meeting times vary depending on youth and mentors schedules. Transportation within Rochester city limits is provided.
