Job Description

BACKGROUND: The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 28 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home. The IRC in Atlanta office was established in 1979 and has resettled over 27,000 refugees from 50 countries into the Greater Atlanta area. As the largest refugee resettlement agency in Georgia, the IRC in Atlanta resettles an average of 1,000 refugees into Georgia annually and provides additional services and assistance to another 2,500 refugees and asylees.

SCOPE OF ICM INTERN WORK: The IRC’s Intensive Case Management (ICM) Program provides case management services for up to 12 months to refugees and asylees who have special needs, such as significant medical needs, that cannot be fully addressed through standard resettlement services. Through a strengths-based, client-centered model of service delivery, the ICM program aims to increase self-reliance and community integration among our most vulnerable clients. Services include connecting them with internal and external resources, closely monitoring their progress through a series of assessments, and helping them achieve the long-term goals through their service plan. This is an unpaid internship position that requires a minimum commitment of 15 hours a week for at least two months.

RESPONSIBILITIES: The ICM Intern will assist caseworkers with the following tasks:

  • Map community assets and help make referrals to community partners
  • Assist in scheduling medical appointments for clients
  • Educate clients on U. S. healthcare and social service systems
  • Assist clients in applying for social service assistance programs
  • Input client information into IRC’s database
  • Communicate client concerns with ICM staff and coordinate service plan with supervisor
  • Submit inter hours on volunteer dashboard
  • Other duties as assigned



  • Excellent communication and writing skills
  • Organized with attention to detail
  • Able to work independently and under pressure
  • An interest in international and refugee issues
  • Creativity and initiative to follow through on projects
  • Strong desire to help people and enthusiasm for working in a multi-cultural setting
