Internships at The City Mission

We’re always on the lookout for bright and energetic individuals to fill a range of dynamic internships.  Our interns serve semester terms during Fall, Spring and Summer. The City Mission wants to prepare its interns for practical service and ministry, specifically that in an urban, crisis setting. You’ll learn how to minister to men, women and children in crisis, but it won’t be easy. We’ll give you responsibilities that we will hold you to. Don’t plan on a semester of making coffee, organizing or filing—we’ve got big plans for you!
