Background
The International Rescue Committee, Inc. (IRC) helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to people forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 25 U.S cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to rebuild their lives. The IRC in Baltimore was established in 1999 and currently serves over 2,500 immigrants and refugees per year.

Scope of Work 
The youth case management intern will support the activities of the youth program at the IRC. The youth program supports incoming refugee students and families to succeed in U.S. schools through providing orientations to the U.S. school system, facilitating parent engagement in their children’s education, and supporting public schools to serve refugee students. The IRC youth program works in close partnership with the Refugee Youth Project at Baltimore City Community College, Soccer Without Borders, Baltimore City Public Schools, and Baltimore Country Public Schools. The youth case management intern will work closely with the youth services team to provide direct services to refugee families.
