Polaris Project is a young organization that is both highly effective and efficient, with an unwavering focus on fighting human trafficking. The management team is nimble, continually innovating to find more powerful ways of advancing their mission. One of the organization's strengths is its web of close working relationships with other groups (including government entities) to form powerful alliances to combat modern-day slavery. This, along with an unwavering focus on its mission and a team of dedicated staff and volunteers, has enabled Polaris Project to show impressive results while making very efficient use of donors' inputs.

Polaris Project has a unique organizational culture that emphasizes a strengths-based approach, and strategic planning and evaluation. Polaris Project's staff are experts in the field, extremely hard working, but also humble and inclusive people. The organization is constantly assessing its efforts and adapting its programs to have more impact, and be more conducive to systemic change. Instead of basking in its many awards, Polaris Project is constantly innovating and tailoring its programs in order to remain on the cutting edge of the field, and develop a best-practice approach. It has been a pleasure to work with them.

I am currently working as a fellow at Polaris Project and it has been a wonderful experience, in terms of my academic, professional and personal interests. The fellowship lasts for about 5 months and gives students and graduates the chance to work and participate in the anti-trafficking movement. As a fellow, I went through a special training session that focused on human trafficking in the U.S., and this really helped to solidify my understanding of the issue. After the training, I was fully integrated into the development team and worked with them on various fundraising campaigns and initiatives. I was treated like any other staff member and given real responsibilities. I never felt like an intern in any way, which was great compared to previous experiences. I am very happy with Polaris Project overall -- great cause and work, amazing people, and a wonderful atmosphere to come to work to every single day!
