BACKGROUND: The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster. Founded in 1933 at the call of Albert Einstein, the IRC is at work in over 40 countries and 26 U.S. cities helping people to survive, reclaim control of their future and strengthen their communities.

The Women's Resilience Center (WRC) is a safe, collaborative space where the diverse needs of all women+ are respected and where they can seek, share, and obtain information about their rights and their inherent potential for safety, health, education, economic wellbeing, and power. It is a responsive, creative space that engages women+ as co-creators and encourages expression, enhanced wellbeing, and community connectedness. (When we use the term women+, this includes women of all ages, all abilities, diverse ethnic and religious affiliation and diverse sexual orientation and gender identities.)

In this internship, students will have the opportunity to contribute to the WRC through community engagement and outreach as well as by supporting the facilitation of programming.

· Support with outreach to women+ in the IRC community about WRC programs
· Co-facilitate orientations to new WRC members
· Co-facilitate wellness workshops and presentations
· Support our 'Safe Spaces' work to make the WRC a more inclusive place for women+
· Collaborate with interns, staff, other departments at IRC, and community partners

· Provide WRC members information about community resources
· Contribute to data monitoring and evaluation of WRC programs
