Ethnic Young Adult Summer Internship 2021 (GBCS)

Church and Society is recruiting for their Ethnic Young Adult internship cohort for summer 2021 (June 5 – July 31). 

The Ethnic Young Adult Internship (EYA) is designed for United Methodist young people wanting 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 UM 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 the alumni reflection here.
