Meaningful Work. Meaningful Experience.

Interning at The City Mission

We’re on the lookout for bright, energetic students and recent grads to fill a wide variety of semester-long internships. Our staff is made up of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and skill sets, and we find that every intern class is too. Some roles are on the front lines of ministering to men, women and children experiencing crisis. Some are administrative or community engagement focused. But every role is vital to advancing the God's Kingdom in Cleveland. We give interns serious responsibilities and challenge them to leave a lasting impact on this city. If you choose to apply and intern with us, don’t plan on a semester of making coffee, organizing or filing—we’ve got big plans for you!
