The IRC’s US offices offer a variety of unpaid internship opportunities throughout the year.

Steps to becoming an IRC Intern:

  1. To see a list of current internship openings, please visit the IRC Careers page select Search Jobs and Apply and select "US- MD-Silver Spring" in the location menu.
  2. Complete an interview with IRC staff.
  3. Once you complete an interview and accept an offer, the IRC will conduct a background and reference check. Your internship is contingent upon your successful passage of the background and reference check.
  4. When your placement is confirmed, the Volunteer Coordinator will work with you and the appropriate staff person to schedule your first day. All newly accepted interns are required to attend an orientation session to learn about office policies, confidentiality, and communication guidelines, and to make all efforts to participate in ongoing training opportunities. The application process typically takes at least two weeks to complete (including the background check).
