Over the summer, Verité welcomed 11 interns to work on projects across the Research and Assessments departments. Summer interns made meaningful contributions to our organization, from preparing curricula and organizational toolkits for child labor inspectors to researching the connection between forestry-linked environmental degradation and trafficking in persons, in addition to other interesting and important work.
