BACKGROUND: Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a leading, non-sectarian, non-profit organization providing emergency relief, protection, rehabilitation assistance, resettlement services, and advocacy for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict.  Domestically, our 22 offices across the U.S. ensure new arrivals have food, shelter, and clothing, and work with refugees to help them gain self-sufficiency.

The Individual Development Accounts (IDA) program provides matched savings accounts for low income working refugees and aslyees specifically for building assets: first-time home ownership, small business assets, and post-secondary education, technical training, and recertification. The IDA program is a unique approach to helping individuals and families with low incomes. Instead of giving families income assistance, the IDA program helps these individuals and families invest in assets that build their economic security.

The IDA Program Assistant will assist with the processing of IDA program applications and maintenance of participant data.  The organization is looking for a student to work 20 hours per week and they will be flexible with your scehdule.
