Ethnic Young Adult Summer Internship 2022 (Church & Society)

The General Board of Church and Society is calling for Ethnic Young Intern applicants for this summer (June 5 – July 30, 2022). The application deadline is March 1, 2022.

The Ethnic Young Adult Internship (EYA) is for United Methodist young people desiring to put their faith in action! Interns gain professional experience with Church and Society partner organizations who work on justice issues in the sphere of public policy, nonprofit, and advocacy.

EYAs participate in weekly seminars that explore faith, identity, and a variety of justice issues. EYAs are introduced to The United Methodist Church’s history of social action and our United Methodist Social Principles. Interns learn from staff about work of justice, peace, and advocacy. EYA’s engage in weekly devotions and opportunities for faith formation and vocational discernment. Read an alumni reflection on the impact of the program here.
