Winter Internship Program
The Coalition offers an intensive volunteer internship program for college and university undergraduates during their Winter Break—coinciding with Human Trafficking Prevention Month—to create a live event.
The internship is hybrid - blending remote and in person work, and coincides with winter break for many college undergraduates. The program begins with an Orientation and HT 101 in November 2022 and runs through January 11th 2023, Human Trafficking Awareness Day. The program will consist of 15 college undergraduate students (from both two-year and four-year institutions) who will work together on a group project to create a January 11th AWARENESS DAY event, which will be broadcasted live. The in-person meetings will be held at Kean University's Human Rights Institute.
Deadline to apply is October 14, 2022
