GCWJ: Preparing a Place for You
The GCWJ purpose of taking Vanguard students abroad is to have them experience how local organizations serve victims and survivors of human trafficking and other types of exploitation. The GCWJ will travel to Greece in Summer 2024 and would like to provide as many students as possible with the opportunity to learn from our partners abroad and their best practices. We want these students to carry on the legacy of studying the issues, being a voice, and making a difference in the fight against human trafficking.
Giving Day 2022 Update
The funds raised in 2022 were used to enhance the student and intern environment, providing for a more impactful and inviting space.
Why should donors support this fund?
The GCWJ was founded in 2003, and is a Christian-based, non-profit organization housed within Vanguard University of Southern California. We focus much of our efforts on anti-human trafficking prevention and education and related topics. Our efforts include interdisciplinary studies programs, integrated research, victim-survivor advocacy, and education on issues impacting vulnerable and at-risk populations. Supporting students in their academic and developmental journey to adulthood will be supported by giving them an opportunity to explore their world and apply what they have learned beyond the classroom.
How will the funds be used?
Giving Day 2023 funds will be used to supplement travel expenses for students that have a financial need. This project will help pay for flight, ground transportation, and housing during the study abroad timeline.
