Administrative Internship , International Rescue Committee

Never heard of us? Neither had many of the 18 million people we helped last year.
The International Rescue Committee is one of the leading and largest humanitarian organizations in the world. With rescue and relief operations in 40 countries and resettlement offices in 25 U.S. cities, we are a $600 million+ organization with a $1.5 billion portfolio of programs. And we are growing exponentially because our humanitarian support is needed like never before and because our 15,000-plus team members go to the toughest places on earth to provide relief. 
We also do cutting-edge research. We believe that the world’s 60 million displaced people require more than “aid as usual.”  Their growing and increasingly complex needs mandate a transformation—a creative rethinking—in the global humanitarian response.
Our strategy – IRC 2020 – answers that call. We are building programs that rebuild lives, providing more and faster rescue and relief, creating the capacity for systematic research to develop innovative approaches to crisis situations, and building collaboration with the public, private and non-profit sectors.
