NCYL is accepting applications to form the third cohort of the CSEC Action Team’s Advisory Board, which will be comprised of 10 members. The cohort will begin immediately and run through December 2022.

The CSEC Advisory Board centers the leadership of survivors and people with lived experience with commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and/or sex trafficking as a child or youth in shaping policies and practices across California and the country.  The Board will provide critical insight and expertise to improve the way we identify, connect with, and support youth who have experienced CSE.  Board members will be compensated for their time, and provided with self care and professional development opportunities throughout their service on the Board.

Board members must live in California, be at least 18 years or older and have experienced CSE and/or sex trafficking as a child or youth, and be at least three years removed from exploitation.  Prior members of the Advisory Board will not be consideredApplicants who identify as male, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer (LGBTQ+), and/or indigenous/native have been underrepresented on previous cohorts of the Board, and are strongly encouraged to apply.  We are looking for members with diverse backgrounds and experiences, both personal and professional, to ensure that survivors of all backgrounds have a seat at the table.

We encourage you to apply, or to share this with someone in your life who would be a great addition to the Board!
