Spend the summer working alongside an international freedom business with a mission to empower women trapped in the sex trade through employment and education.

This internship may include training locals in these areas as well as taking on related projects over the course of the summer.

You will explore the intersection of faith, work, and justice as you work in your field of study, spend time with visionary business leaders, and create community with incredible women coming out of the sex trade. Applicants should be extremely mature, self-motivated, team players who are teachable and excited to see Jesus move in and around them.

The program will begin with an orientation (along with Global Urban Trek participants) and end with a short debrief in the San Francisco Bay Area.
