Anti-Human Trafficking Fellowship
Human Trafficking Search is a program run by the OLP Foundation. Human Trafficking Search maintains a global database of human trafficking resources, government reports, literature, multimedia sources, and other documents to assist students, researchers, and stakeholders in the anti-trafficking movement.
We just moved to We Work DuPont which is filled with dozens of non-profits and innovative technology start-ups. The space holds networking events, talks, and weekly happy hours to help people doing good work connect. We are looking for fellows eager to take advantage of these opportunities and passionate about ending human trafficking.
We are offering two types of fellowships this summer- Regional Area Fellowship and Communications Fellowship.
Region Area Fellowship
The Regional Area Fellows will be tasked with connecting with practitioners within their region of focus and compiling and curating resources based on that specific region of the world. Fellows will have the unique opportunity to interact with and learn from practitioners in the anti-trafficking field and will collect resources on various forms of human trafficking for various stakeholders. Through a speaker series and direct contact with national and international anti-trafficking practitioners, fellows will have the opportunity to network and engage in the field.
Regional Area Fellows will:
• Research various forms of human trafficking and stakeholder resources in a language of choice.
• Compile resources to be added to the Global Database.
• Serve as a liaison between Human Trafficking Search and Stakeholders in various regions of the world.
• Assemble region-specific awareness campaigns to raise awareness of human trafficking around the world and to promote Human Trafficking Search as a resource tool for students, researchers, and other stakeholders.
• Learn and work alongside a number of accomplished anti-trafficking practitioners.
This Fellowship is unpaid, but we encourage applicants to apply for summer internship funding. The fellowship is open to seven individuals, one in each region:
