S.T.R.E.E.T. - Specialized Techniques in Recovery, Engagement, and Empowerment Training

 This 10-day residency program, scheduled to be launched in 2020 or 2021, is part of NCITI's Specialized Techniques in Recovery, Engagement, and Empowerment Training program. Volunteer Trainees pay their own expenses to travel to key urban areas throughout the United States, for a two-week training and internship, focusing on outreach to runaways, "thrownaways," child prostitutes, and indigenous, endangered youth.  

The curriculum consists of daily morning  classes on a variety of different topics related to safe, ethical, and effective street outreach , daily afternoon break time, and nightly visits to target urban areas, to engaged in supervised outreach activities.  The goal of this training is to prepare the participants to return to their own communities to organize their own outreach teams, and/or to periodically travel to participate in subsequent S.T.R.E.E.T. events. 

Target cities currently under consideration for future S.T.R.E.E.T.  Team training events are: 

  • Tampa, FL 
  • Ft. Lauderdale, FL 
  • Orlando, FL
  • Dallas, TX
  • Houston, TX
  • New York City, NY 
  • San Francisco, CA 
  • San Diego, CA 
  • Minneapolis, MN, and 
  • Washington, DC.  

(these tentative locations are subject to change).
