Abstract

This semester, I interned at World Relief Chicago as a refugee resettlement intern. World Relief is a nonprofit organization that has been supporting vulnerable immigrant populations since 1980. I interned in tandem with taking the Psychology Internship course at Loyola. Because this is a humanities-based internship, I had the opportunity to accept the Mellon Funding Award. The following project is my contribution to the Immigrant Family Services department of World Relief. My project consisted of creating an online job readiness resource that will promote autonomy in our clients, making their transition into American life easier.
