We strive to empower the next generation of anti-trafficking leaders!
The RAV Fellowship is a 9 month long program with the goal to train and empower those passionate about human trafficking and wanting to make a difference in this global epidemic. The 9 month long internship starts with a 3 month training period at Raising A Voice Headquarters in Knoxville, TN. The training is focused on preparing our interns to be on the field through training in human trafficking, cross-cultural ministry as well as a biblical study in God & Justice. Each intern will be discipled and live in an intentional Christian community. From there, the interns will be sent to work with RAV's international partners in Kenya & Argentina for 3 months each. RAV interns will leave with an expansive knowledge of the fight against human trafficking locally & globally.
