The mandate of the outreach field worker aims at sexual exploitation and violence prevention.
In creating meaningful bonds with the teenage girls of Côte-des-Neiges (aged 12 to 17), the outreach field worker promotes options and alternatives to hypersexualization and sexual exploitation in an attempt to rally and engage the girls in school, social, economic, community and political activities amongst others. To attain these goals, the outreach field worker facilitates access to existing borough resources whilst participating in new activity and resource creation in order to better serve the young girls.
