By hosting the 24-Hour Justice Experience (24JE), you can make modern-day slavery real through teaching and hands-on activities. Your youth will serve their community, fund rescue and join a movement of students ending slavery. We’ll provide you with a free downloadable 24JE Leader’s Guide and all the tools you need to place students onto the frontlines of the anti-slavery movement.

Host a 24 Hour Justice Experience with your students!

We hope your students will be challenged and inspired to take action for justice.

IJM's 24JE Leader's Guide has everything you need to help you plan this experience for your students. We suggest you give a copy to each leader as you prepare.

We have broken out some sections of the guide on this page for easy access later. Other resources here will help you create an exciting 24JE for your group.

We look forward to hearing how God moves in your group's 24JE soon.

So keep us posted. Ask us questions. Send photos. And let us know how you're training up the next generation of justice-seekers.
