Minimum of two full, eight-hour days (strongly preferred, but flexible depending on candidate pool)
Full-time interns (serving more than 20 hour per week) serve a minimum of one semester. Part-time (serving up to 20 hours per week) serve a minimum of two semesters.
It is our goal for each of our case specialists to supervise either one full-time or two part-time interns per semester.
This internship is not for the faint of heart! Our case management interns hit the ground running and spend their intern days taking their supervisor's cases to appointments (~60% of their time) and doing administrative tasks that support the resettlement of these cases (~40% of their time). This includes a substantial amount of refugee transportation, waiting rooms, and non-stop days. You will work alongside other case management interns and be supported and invested in by your supervisor. All of our case management interns finish their internship saying they have grown in independence, advocacy, organization, and an impressive ability to problem solve in a job that never goes as planned. The administrative side of this internship requires the ability to be detail-oriented, organized, and efficient. We are willing to help you grow in these skills if you are willing to show up every day with a good, open attitude.
General Internship Responsibilities:
Interns assist with nearly all the tasks required of case specialists as they assist newly arrived refugees. Associated appointments are outlined in the Core Services on our website (link). A sample of administrative tasks are listed here: Case Management Intern Administrative Tasks. These documents may be hard to understand without an orientation to our programs, but should give you a general idea of tasks.
