The purpose of the World Relief Internship Program is to prepare Christians considering a career in cross-cultural service by immersing them in the field of refugee resettlement. Interns are essential to our ministry, volunteering in hands-on ways such as accompanying refugees on important appointments, setting up apartments for new arrivals, and assisting with community outreach and engagement.

World Relief interns have the opportunity to gain professional casework skills, build meaningful relationships, and learn about local and global refugee issues, both through direct-service to refugees and ongoing training and debriefing sessions.

World Relief's internship program is competitive and has accepted students and recent graduates from universities across the United States. We select applicants from all fields of study who demonstrate excellence in service and learning, and a desire to serve Christ through ministry to refugees. Internship alumni have gone on to diverse fields such as international development, education, missions, local politics, and, of course, refugee ministry.
