Because of its broad scope of programs and services, Outreach offers both undergraduate and graduate level internships for a wide variety of disciplines. An internship at one of Outreach’s divisions gives students a chance to put principles learned into practice. Outreach’s context gives interns exposure to students and families from a broad range of social, economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds. Each opportunity also gives students exposure to the overall workings of a Christian, community-based, human service ministry.
Outreach looks for interns who are currently enrolled in an academic program or other adults seeking to grow their skills or explore a new field. Outreach also looks for interns who demonstrate a sensitivity to the needs of low income and diverse populations, communicate professionally, and are interested in a faith-based organization. Outreach is a great setting for interns who are interested in both learning and serving.
