Jessica's role as the Outreach and Prevention Advocate permits her to work within the community to educate agencies and schools on the importance of child sexual abuse and preventions, such as the Darkness to Lights Stewards of Children trainings, and child fatality prevention strategies such as safe sleep initiatives, etc. Jessica's role as the Child Trafficking Coordinator will be to build and maintain the “Safe Harbour Critical Team.” She will serve as the point of contact for victims of commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking. Some of Jessica's duties will include, but are not limited to, coordinating and facilitating meetings and trainings, providing and giving guidance to programs or agencies that respond to human trafficking, and collecting data related to Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) and child trafficking.
