Mission Intern Program

The Mission Intern Program is a leadership development and social justice opportunity for young adults (20-30 years old).

The three-year program is divided into a 18-month international work/study assignment and a 18-month action/education assignment in one's own country. It is an opportunity for young people to hear the prophetic voice of communities and individuals around the world who are working for systemic change and to apply that experiential learning to their home context. The program encourages participants to learn about and live out the transformative gospel of Jesus Christ while working as grassroots organizers and/or advocates in areas of conflict resolution, peace, education, environmental justice, economic development, indigenous rights, and women's and children's issues.
