Learn More About the IRC from an Intern's Perspective
This past summer, Christie was an intern on the Development team at the IRC in Salt Lake City. Below, she shares her experience working with the IRC and what she learned throughout her internship.
“This past summer I worked with the IRC on the development team as a graphic design intern. I designed new marketing materials for the IRC in Salt Lake City. Since I was new to the organization, I had a lot to learn. My first project was to make a large poster to explain the five steps that refugees take on their path to citizenship. I had to do a bit of research concerning civics and citizenship and how refugees receive citizenship. I helped take photos at a school for the images that went on the poster. The poster is now displayed in the front lobby of the IRC to serve as a reference for refugees who have questions about the path to citizenship. I also volunteered a few Mondays and Saturdays teaching refugees topics like U.S. history and geography.
