Volunteer Opportunity for Raising Awareness about Human Trafficking!

The NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons is bringing a GIFT Box to New York City in January 2014. The interactive gift box (that you can walk into!) will be displayed in Union Square for the last two weeks of January. The Super Bowl is in New Jersey this year; there have been several cases of sex trafficking reported in the US around large sporting events, due to the huge influx of tourists. This project will help raise awareness about the issue of trafficking here in the US. Many RPCVs have worked on anti-trafficking initiatives as part of their service, but it is not a requirement to participate! All volunteers will receive a training and will be with a group during this service project.
Volunteers will be staffing the box to answer questions about the GIFT Box and provide visitors with further information on how to get involved in efforts to combat human trafficking.

  • Participation in a training on one of the following dates:
    -Saturday, January 11th from 10am-2pm
    -Thursday, January 16th from 2pm-6pm
  • Agree to work at the GIFT Box for a 3 or 4 hour shifts between January 17th-February 1st
