The 2-week long Advocates Programme at Challenging Heights is designed for people who are passionate about ending modern slavery. Through in-depth and hands-on learning experiences, participants will be equipped to become a global Advocate for Challenging Heights and the fight against modern slavery.

The programme combines time in the field with classroom discussions on various aspects of modern slavery. With first-hand experience, participants will be able to take the knowledge and join the global fight against modern slavery.
