Two lead internships will include a $2,000 stipend plus housing on PLNU's campus for the 10 weeks. Other unpaid internships may be available by special petition.  Ten hours of each intern's week will be with one of our partner agencies who work on the ground against human trafficking (e.g. with survivors).  

Interns will:

1.       Learn about the reality of human trafficking in the San Diego/Tijuana region, and the growing movement to confront it.  

2.      Gain experience researching specific topics related to human trafficking that will advance their own, the university's and the anti-trafficking movement's knowledge.  

3.      Gain experience making the connection between research and policy for county-wide and state-wide change.

4.      Gain experience networking with a wide range of stakeholders (social service agencies, schools, Child Welfare Services, law enforcement, government, survivors, etc.).

5.      Engage in work that directly impacts the anti-trafficking movement.  Specific experiences may include:  research; advocacy; HT curriculum design and implementation (trainings); external relations (friend-raising and fundraising); community meetings; networking human trafficking work with churches and other Christian college/university campuses.  Ten hours of each intern's week will be with one of our partner agencies who work on the ground against human trafficking (e.g. with survivors).
