    title
    Refugee Resettlement Intern
    overview
    • The IRC in New York City works to resettle refugees, immigrants, asylees and then some from Syria to Sri Lanka. The Resettlement Services Program is the first point of contact for newly arrived refugees and offers support, guidance and counseling though all stages of resettlement. As an intern I help provide initial services to orient refugees to life in the U.S., including (but not limited to) securing housing, addressing medical concerns, applying for Social Security and NYC ID cards, opening bank accounts, and linking refugees to IRC's internal and mainstream services.
