    The Women’s Refugee Commission is an evidence-based advocacy organization that advocates vigorously for laws, policies and programs to improve the lives and protect the rights of refugee and internally displaced women, children and young people, including those seeking asylum—bringing about lasting, measurable change.

    The Women’s Refugee Commission is legally part of the International Rescue Committee, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. The Women’s Refugee Commission receives no direct financial support from the IRC.


    The Intern will provide overall support to the Youth and Livelihoods Initiative. This multi-year global research and advocacy initiative aims to increase attention and support for livelihood programs that help prepare young women and men for life during and after displacement. In partnership with displaced youth, we are mapping existing services and innovative practices; identifying gaps, needs and priorities of the displaced youth; and recommending strategies to meet non-formal educational and job training needs.

    PRODUCTS AND ACTIVITIES (will include some or all of the following):

    1. Conduct desk research and analysis on lessons learned from innovative non-formal education and job training programs for youth.
    2. Participate in the development and maintenance of a new monitoring and evaluation system to capture progress toward meeting advocacy objectives for the Youth and Livelihoods Initiative.
    3. Assist in finalizing the findings of a domestic field visit focused on refugee youth who have resettled to New York City. Activities include: background research on resettlement figures, local economy and youth serving organizations in location; draft sections of report, as appropriate.
    4. Co-manage the Women’s Refugee Commission’s Youth Advisory Group, comprised of young people from conflict-affected countries to help guide and inform the initiative.
    5. Attend meetings as a representative of the Women’s Refugee Commission, taking notes and summarizing relevant information in written form.
    6. Research prospective donors for the initiative.
    7. Contribute to a database of organizations and actors working on youth-related issues for advocacy and networking purposes.
    8. Assist with administrative duties, including drafting letters, editing reports and other activities as required.


    • Excellent research, data collection, analysis and writing skills.
    • Strong background in relief and international development, with knowledge of and interest in conflict-affected populations, youth, education and livelihood activities.
    • Experience working with young people and/or in developing countries a plus.
    • Excellent communication and computer skills.
    • Comfortable taking initiative and working with minimal supervision. Team player.
