Each year JRS/USA offers opportunities for volunteer advocacy internships at its Washington, D.C. national office. Advocacy internships provide individuals with supervised, refugee-related policy research and a hands-on experience of refugee protection work in the Washington area.  College credit can be earned if the intern’s home institution participates in an internship credit-option program. 

JRS seeks men and women for international volunteer positions who share our vision of accompanying refugees and who are prepared for the complex tasks involved in refugee situations. JRS volunteers may be lay persons, Jesuits or members of a religious congregation. JRS seeks specialists in education, counseling, rehabilitation, management and related fields. Especially helpful is past experience in training others. There are also needs for people with technical skills, especially in communication, law, agriculture and small-scale development work.
