Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a leading nonsectarian, voluntary organization providing relief, protection and resettlement services for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict. In addition, the IRC in Kansas provides community outreach, education and training, and case management services to victims of human trafficking. Other at-risk individuals and families are served through employment services, job readiness training, adult education and immigration services.

Internship Summary
The Human Trafficking Research and Evaluation Intern will work alongside the Anti-Trafficking Program Manager, Research Lead, and staff and students at the University of Kansas to contribute to existing research in the field of human trafficking within Kansas, both from the point of view of prevalence, as well as service provision efficacy. The aims of the role can broadly be split in to two project areas: the development and implementation of an action research plan that will gauge the effectiveness of service delivery to clients; and working in conjunction with professors and students at the University of Kansas to synthesize current and new research and data on labor trafficking within Kansas, with the aim of identifying “hotspots” where service providers can focus their outreach efforts. The Human Trafficking Research and Evaluation Intern will work directly under the supervision and guidance of the Anti-Human Trafficking Program Coordinator.


Project 1:

Conduct a “literature review” of existing research in the Wichita area and beyond that pertain to service provision for survivors of human trafficking;
Alongside the Anti-Trafficking Program Manager and Research Lead, develop and implement a sustainable action research plan that will capture data relevant to service delivery efficacy from a range of stakeholders, including survivors, agency partners, and community groups.

Project 2:

Synthesize and analyze data gathered from the University of Kansas’ Spring Semester colloquium, including information gained through literature reviews, service provider interviews, and Spotlight data;
Present final report on analysis of service provision for survivors of human trafficking in Kansas, with a particular emphasis on identifying underserved populations, potential labor trafficking “hotspots” and recommendations for the direction of outreach efforts.

Time Commitment
For the sake of stability and continuity, the IRC asks for a minimum commitment of 3-4 months, with at least 15 hours per week.

In-depth training will be provided for interns to understand human trafficking case management programming and the various needs of clients accessing services. A high-level of confidentiality is required when working with IRC clients.
