Internship Opportunities

WHAT IMPACT DO YOU WANT TO HAVE ON THE WORLD? Start making a difference with the IRC.

Interning with the IRC gives you the chance to change a life. 
Forced to flee conflict and persecution, many refugees have survived against incredible odds for years in refugee camps or temporary settlements. They step off the plane at Oakland International Airport into an unfamiliar country and unknown future, having traveled thousands of miles with next to nothing but their dignity and determination.  Interns are an integral part of IRC's operations and leave with transferable non-profit skills and hands-on experience related to refugee resettlement.
