Support for Refugees - A Humanitarian Crisis

Social Work Internship

Share this page

The refugee crisis in Greece has reached record levels, with over 62,000 refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, and elsewhere stranded in Greece, with refugee families continuing to arrive daily. Social Work Interns in Greece provide important and meaningful services to support the physical, social, and emotional needs of camp residents through work in the distribution center and supporting daily census activities for new arrivals to the camp.

Due to the sensitive nature of a social work internship at a refugee camp, Social Work Interns must be 20 years of age or older and commit to a 12-week internship experience. Students of social work or related fields are invited to support the distribution of clothing, water, and hygiene supplies through our Volunteer Abroad Refugee Program in Greece.

The pressure is on--college fair after college fair, thousands of brochures, late-nights up researching the endless choices for majors; all while taking finals and trying to finish off high school. At this point in life, high school graduates are still in the process of figuring out who they are and understanding the world, but they are simultaneously forced into making the biggest decision of their life. What if going directly into college directly after completing high school isn’t the best choice?
