The Salvation Army National Headquarter's Social Services Department offers undergraduate and graduate level anti-trafficking internships at its office in Alexandria, Virginia. Students pursuing degrees in political science, social work, counseling/psychology and other related fields are encouraged to apply. Internships are available for the fall, spring and summer terms.
Interns are given the opportunity to represent The Salvation Army at a wide range of meetings and events, as well as to attend congressional hearings and public forums on subjects related to trafficking in persons. Events attended in Washington D.C. will enable interns to obtain a macro-level understanding of trafficking in persons and the many areas of social policy it affects. Interns will also do project-related research (on topics related to sex trafficking, commercial sexual exploitation, and abuse of women and children), website updates, graphic design, as well as typing and formatting of correspondence, reports, and presentations. Applicants with strong writing and computer skills, as well as an ability to manage multiple tasks are preferred. Applications are accepted year-round. For more information including details on the application process, email your request to: Penny_Matheson@usn.salvationarmy.org
Please do not contact us for internship opportunities outside of the metropolitan DC area, or in fields other than anti-trafficking. We do not make referrals. To apply for an internship in another location or field, you will need to contact your local Salvation Army.
