*There will be individual training and mentorship through the fundraising process. 



 Every trafficking situation is different and victims come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. With such a wide range of possibilities, we believe it is important to prepare our fellows to be trained before they are sent out. We do this by gathering a group of qualified speakers to teach about human trafficking & cross cultural ministry. Interns will go through rigorous training to educate them on the elements of anti-trafficking work, cross cultural ministry & how to bring lasting impact into other cultures.


Discipleship is the key to our program. Each fellow will have a mentor pouring into them while in Knoxville to support them as they grow spiritually & wrestle with the challenges of human trafficking during the training portion. While overseas they will also have calls with a mentor to support them as they work with different ministries.

Field Expereince

 We desire for all our fellows to gain a variety of field experience to gain understanding of all sides of anti-trafficking work; from advocacy and education to rehabilitation of the victims. With a well rounded view of human trafficking, we pray our interns will be able to get better direction for the role they will play in anti-trafficking work.
