Summer Assignments: Center for Global Justice 2014 Interns


This year, 19 Center for Global Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law interns are scattered around the globe, serving organizations that protect children, promote religious freedom, fight human trafficking, and aid the poor. Some of our interns serve organizations located a short drive from Regent University’s campus, such as the Virginia Beach Justice Initiative. Others travel a bit further to Washington, D.C., and Texas, while others board long flights to Africa and Asia.

No matter where they go, the Center for Global Justice interns will be equipped to seek justice for the downtrodden and combat human rights abuses.
