The IRC in Atlanta offers intern and volunteer assistant positions in all of our program departments. Positions are filled on a rolling basis with early applicants receiving preference.

Our intern and volunteer assistant positions require a minimum of 15 hours per week for three months, and are unpaid.

Internships are available for current college students, graduate students, and graduates less than 6 months post-graduation.  Course credit is available if the student submits the appropriate paperwork to the Volunteer Coordinator.

Volunteer assistant positions are similar roles to our internships, and are available for anyone who is not a student but would like to make a similar time commitment.


You can see a list of our available intern and volunteer assistant positions here.
