Intern at a Human Trafficking Shelter

Read First

You may have an academic requirement to intern with an agency in your field of study. Interning can be an invaluable way of contextualizing your learning and confirming your discernment to go into a particular field. Interns can also be a great asset to the placement agency – assuming there’s a fit and a clear understanding of expectations.

The National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance is a network of residential agencies (shelters) across the United States, and many of them would welcome an intern. The specific duties and learning environment will vary greatly, but this is your place to start the application process.

If you would like to be considered as an intern within a human trafficking shelter program, complete the Application Form (to the right) a minimum of 30 days before you need your placement.

We will review your application and pass it along to the agencies that may have an internship opportunity for you. Interested agencies will contact you directly. We will not be sending you a list of potential sites.

It is your responsibility to:

  • Know and communicate the intern requirements from your school
  • Prepare interview questions for the agencies that may offer you placement
  • Know your own limits of what work you will do, and how you may respond to the traumatic injuries of others
  • If selected, you will be expected to adhere to all of the guidelines, policies, and restrictions of the placing agency
