Polaris Project's Fellowship Program is a formalized leadership development program focused on training future leaders to serve in the anti-trafficking movement and other related fields. Based primarily out of Polaris Project's Washington, D.C. headquarters office, this program is integrated into all of our programmatic and operational departments to offer fellows the maximum amount of opportunities. Fellows also participate in our local client services offices in Washington, D.C. and Newark, New Jersey. The Fellowship Program is nationally recognized as one of the premiere leadership development programs exclusively focused on the issue of human trafficking and on providing young professionals with training and on-the-ground practical experiences in the anti-trafficking movement. After participating in an intensive training and orientation process, fellows engage in meaningful projects and continuing education and professional development activities. Since the fellowship program's inception in Spring 2003, more than 500 fellows have completed the Fellowship Program, many of whom have gone on to fill important roles in the anti-trafficking movement and other related fields.
