Our university programs empower students to join the efforts to eradicate child exploitation. We are empowering a new generation of abolitionists and practitioners.

The Challenge:
University students don’t always understand that human trafficking is an issue both in their communities and around the world. College students are not immune to the atrocities of exploitation. Yet they can also be the force behind the cultural shift needed to eradicate it.

 

Our Response:
Empower Universities is about providing university students, faculty and staff with engaging education about child exploitation and then empowering them to respond. Our internship program provides students with an in-depth look at what it means to be a human rights organization working to inspire an empathetic movement that will eradicate child exploitation. (Apply for an internship by sending your resume and cover letter to info@iempathize.org.) Our Empathy Week program empowers students at university campuses across the United States with in-depth experiences. The week of activities and experiences challenge students to empathize and engage as they prepare to be our country’s leaders and businesspeople. And finally, our film and talk events authenticate the issue in classrooms and at campus events, providing opportunities for students to unpack the issue and assess how they can impact their communities to eradicate child exploitation.

 

Our Impact:
In 2014, six universities hosted iEmpathize; over 3,000 students were introduced to the issue of child exploitation through our programs.
