Field Office Internships
Interns and Fellows gain practical experience by working at an IJM Field Office that advocates for clients in cases of sex trafficking, slavery, unprosecuted rape, illegal detention, police brutality, illegal land seizure, and citizenship rights.
Interns work with IJM field office staff in areas such as legal advocacy, aftercare coordination, administrative support, community relations, project management and special projects. The offices range in size from approximately 10 to 60 people, allowing for ample opportunity to gain professional experience and full exposure to the frontlines of international human rights work.
Each office is led by an IJM Field Office Director experienced in human rights law, Christian leadership and office management. While the majority of IJM field office staff are nationals of the country where the office is located, each office also has staff, interns and fellows from around the globe.

Interning with IJM revealed to me that injustice is rampant, and progress is made slowly. But progress is made when we faithfully obey God's command to seek justice. I was blessed with the opportunity to use my skills to support the full time staff while also learning from them professionally. Seeing the passion with which they work every day for years on end has changed the way I look at my career.
