About Refugee Services of Texas
Guided by the principles of human compassion and dignity, Refugee Services of Texas welcomes refugees, immigrants, and other displaced peoples and supports them in integrating and thriving in their new communities.
Founded in 1978, Refugee Services of Texas (RST) is a social-service agency dedicated to providing assistance to refugees and other displaced persons fleeing persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group – as well as to the communities that welcome them. RST provides services to hundreds of refugees, asylees, survivors of human trafficking, and related vulnerable populations from over 30 different countries of origin each year. Originating in Dallas, RST now has service centers in Amarillo, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Rio Grande Valley.
Interns for Survivors of Trafficking Empowerment Program (STEP)
Within Refugee Services of Texas, there is a program called Survivors of Trafficking Empowerment Program (STEP). Within the unpaid internship program, STEP interns focus on Case Management with our survivors of trafficking clients. Interns will be shadowing our STEP case managers, inputting in data and client notes, as well as attending client checkins.
If there are students who are interested in applying for a spring internship, they can apply by sending their resume to Clara Ann, STEP Community Engagement Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: our internships are in person at our office 500 E St Johns Ave, Austin, Tx 78752.
