Are you passionate about raising awareness about human trafficking?
GIFT Box is currently recruiting volunteers to help staff a GIFT Box exhibit in New York City.
The GIFT Box was launched during the London Olympics in 2012 in partnership with Stop the Traffik. GIFT boxes are “walk-in pieces of public art that people encounter at street level that entice people inside by luring them with enticing promises.” Once inside viewers are shocked to learn about the dangers of human trafficking.
To help execute this project, several partners are leading an effort to train a large group of volunteers to staff the GIFT box at two locations from mid-October to mid-November. Please note it is mandatory to participate in a training to become a volunteer. The trainings will take place in the first 2 weeks of October and will be held at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s headquarters in the Financial District.
This is an exciting opportunity to work hands-on to increase awareness among a large group of commuters, tourists, and at-risk youth about the dangers of human trafficking and give them ways to take action. If you are interested in volunteering, please register here.
Thank you, and please let GIFT Box know if you have any questions.
