Elevating Youth | Elevating Food
The Elevated Chef is a food truck social enterprise designed to provide job opportunities for adolescent victims of trafficking and youth at high risk of being trafficked. Starting in the greater Milwaukee area and expanding business throughout Wisconsin, the company will also generate community engagement and awareness of the issue by focusing on hope, prevention, and restoration.
Employment is a key pillar in helping victims recover and in preventing youth from being sexually exploited. Hundreds of youth in our area are victims of trafficking or are at high risk. With our mission to dismantle the child sex trade in Milwaukee, we created a workforce development program specifically for this population of youth. This includes partnerships with well-established, youth serving organizations to help elevate youth.
