Are you in search of a summer internship full of adventure, learning about different cultures and seeing God work in and through you? Then perhaps our summer internship is exactly what you are looking for! While the cold settles in (at least for the northern half of the country), summer may feel far from your mind, however it is never too early to begin to think of how you will be spending your summer away from college, and International Project’s summer internship is a perfect opportunity for college students who want a summer to remember.

What is the summer internship?

The summer internship is a two-month internship in New York City. It is a time to learn how to engage people of different cultural and religious backgrounds with the gospel, immerse yourself in new cultures, learn about church-planting, and grow in your walk with God.

Why New York City?

New York City has over 3 million foreign-born immigrants, many of whom have never heard about Jesus and the Good News of the gospel. It is a city unlike most. You can walk around the streets and feel completely immersed in a different culture. So much so that you would not even know you are still in America. It is a place you can be as close to overseas missions work without the need for a passport. It is a city of possibility – and not just for your career! It is a place that God is working in and is ripe for harvest. It is a city in need of workers in the fields.

Is summer internship right for you?

Whether missions is something you know a lot or a little about, or whether you are very experienced in sharing your faith or not — if you have a heart desiring to learn and grow and a soul that longs for adventure with God, the summer internship is for you.

The application deadline will be here before you know it. So be bold, be brave and prepare for an adventure to remember. Who knows, at the end of the internship it might not be just your life that is changed forever.
