Human Trafficking Internship - Ghana, Africa

This Fall Internship features two week travel at the end of the semester to Ghana working directly with a Ghanaian NGO, Challenging Heights, to provide assistance to women and children who have been victims of sex and child labor abuses. During the Fall semester, students intern at local institutions working in the area of human trafficking.  Through these experiences,  students will attain a skill set that will allow them to be both advocates for such victims as well as prepare themselves for a work world that addresses these important needs.
