International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Welcome Fall Interns!

The International Rescue Committee in Tucson is thrilled to welcome 35 outstanding interns to our team this year. Interns are an integral part of our work, enabling us to provide employment, immigration and resettlement, and health and well-being services to the hundreds of refugees who arrive in Tucson every year and hundreds more who are on the path toward self-sufficiency.

 

Several of our interns are returning for their second, third, or fourth placement as an IRC intern. This fall’s group of interns is an exceptionally talented and passionate team, with 13 Master’s level interns and others with a range of great experience and areas of interest. We appreciate all of their incredible work!
