Join one of our project teams this semester…

 

Fight Nigerian Human TraffickingHelp Nadia educate Nigerian parents to prevent them from believing lies about jobs in Europe and selling their children to human traffickers. Nadia Woghiren, a 46-year-old Nigerian-born mother of four and an NU nursing student, needs help with an awareness campaign. She needs a team to research and reach out to local or international NGOs in Nigeria who already fight human trafficking – to help with programming and keeping her awareness team safe, and others to discover IGAs (income-generating activities) to fund her program. She has other ideas, such as a rehab facility for survivors, that also need to be thought out more. With your help, we can bring her ideas to reality!  

Gleentown Education: Help Manting Hong, an NU junior, with her organization that teaches soft skills in week-long summer camps to rural Chinese students in grades 2 – 5. In four years, Gleentown has taught communication and analytical thinking skills in fun, teamwork-oriented classes to about 1,500 children. Help her improve her marketing on We Chat to get more volunteers and to figure out IGAs (income-generating activities) to bring financial stability to the program. 

Additive (3D Printing)Join our team as we teach 3D printing to high schoolers! Dearborn Stem Academy is a ten minute bus ride from campus, and we’ll probably be teaching either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 12-1pm. The day of the week will be decided in a few weeks. If you’ve never 3D printed before, don’t worry! It’ll only take a few hours to learn the basic design software and how the printer works. If you can’t make those times but are still interested, there is a social media position available. You’ll just need to post some photos & videos the media person is taking and reach out to some NU news outlets.
