Lutheran Services of Georgia Internships

*Refugee Services internship (Fall/Spring/Summer Semesters) – ATLANTA, SAVANNAH
Interns provide support services to newly arrived refugees under the direction of the Reception and Placement Case
Manager. The Intern accompanies the refugees to assist them in accessing core resettlement services, including picking
up arrivals at the airport, assisting refugees in accessing public services, orienting new arrivals to Atlanta, providing
transportation to/from refugees homes to services such as medical appointments, school registrations, obtaining social
security cards and identification. In addition, interns assist refugee clients to access mainstream social services when
appropriate services are available. In the absence of appropriate mainstream services, the Intern will assist LSG staff to
provide culturally appropriate social adjustment services directly to refugee clients. Examples of social adjustment
services include assisting clients to learn how to budget, to open bank accounts, to seek needed medical help, and to
interact with their landlords and their children’s teachers.
