Uprising believes that every individual is uniquely positioned to confront human trafficking and exploitation in their communities, and youth are no exception. We value all of the lived experience, ideas, and passion that youth have about the issue. Uprising created our youth committee in 2021 as a safe place for youth to get involved in the fight against trafficking, and to create a space where we could learn from them and shape our youth programming.

Things Uprising Youth Committee Members Do:

  • Consult with Uprising staff on youth programming

  • Conduct fundraisers

  • Plan quarterly community events for youth

  • Manage a youth committee budget

  • Create an annual strategic plan

  • Participate in education and prevention about trafficking

  • Public speaking

  • Leadership and skill-building workshops

  • Have FUN!
