Event Details

Join us for a Virtual Site Visit to the International Rescue Committee (IRC)!

The IRC was founded at the behest of Albert Einstein in 1933 to assist people fleeing from persecution. Since then, the IRC has grown and works all over the world providing humanitarian support. In the United States, the IRC is one of 9 US refugee resettlement agencies given permission from the federal government to resettle refugees in the United States. In Silver Spring, the IRC works with refugees the moment they step off the plane to help them get situated and become self-sufficient members of their new community.

The IRC offers a variety of internships (currently virtual) in fields including: Anti-trafficking/Intensive Case Management, Asylee Casework, Career Development, Cultural Orientation & Casework, Economic Empowerment, Family Mentor, Immigration, Intake-Outreach/Q&A, Logistics, Logistics & Casework, Refugee Casework, Youth Casework and Youth Development. You can learn more about all opportunities with the International Rescue Committee here.

Please RSVP for this event in Careers4Terps and you will receive a Zoom webinar link to the event closer to the event date. During the webinar, you will hear from the IRC about their mission and opportunities and learn how to prepare yourself to be a strong candidate for open positions.

There will be time at the end of the program for Q&A. This event is open to students of all class years and majors.
