2021 Spring REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT Internship
We are currently looking for new remote interns (Spring 2021) that are able to work with a diverse, multicultural staff and client population, gain insights into the challenges that refugees/asylees face, provide a service to the office that is integral in the resettlement process, and learn more about non-profit programming and management. If you are interested in learning more about the process of refugees and asylees apply today!
The Refugee Resettlement Department of Catholic Charities Community Services provides assistance to refugees, asylees, SIVs, Cuban/Haitian entrants, certified victims of trafficking, and unaccompanied minors from many different backgrounds. The department offers case management, employment-based, and educational services that help clients feel secure in their new community. To further help us with this goal, we are looking to bring on interns who are interested in engaging in our office functions while interacting one-on-one with clients to help them work towards self-sufficiency.
Due to COVID-19, our office is currently working remotely and will be indefinitely. Once we are open again, please expect to be working physically in the office.
