If I am selected for an IJM international internship position, will this allow me to have direct contact in counseling victims of sex trafficking, slavery and other forms of oppression?
All interns and fellows work closely with IJM staff in assisting our clients. Thus, they receive exposure to the issues involved in rescuing and providing a new life to victims of oppression. However, for security reasons, interns and fellows will only have contact with victims and clients when accompanied by trained IJM professionals. Also, due to language barriers, IJM relies on its national staff and aftercare partners to provide direct counseling.
