Polaris Project seeks a Global Hotlines Program Fellow to work with the newly-formed Global Hotlines team in support of the organization's expanding international work. The Global Hotlines Fellow will assist in the development, implementation, and management of our international technical assistance initiatives. Potential projects for the Spring 2014 Fellow include the creation of country-specific profiles and research into existing anti-trafficking resources outside the United States.
The Global Hotlines Program is the international program of Polaris Project and provides technical assistance related to international anti-trafficking hotlines worldwide. The program seeks to equip countries with the necessary tools and training to successfully launch a national anti-trafficking hotline, incorporate human trafficking services into existing related hotlines, and improve the effectiveness of existing anti-trafficking hotlines. The Global Hotlines Program serves as an international resource center and training and technical assistance adviser for the international community on building and operating national anti-trafficking response mechanisms that serve victims of all forms of human trafficking.
The work of Polaris Project is grounded in a set of values and organizational beliefs that provide a common starting point for all of our activities. At Polaris, we look for talented individuals who are passionate about combating all forms of human trafficking and who will strive to embody and model these values within the Polaris community and in the anti-trafficking field.
