Do you know a young person who wants to put their faith into actions? 

Internships are currently virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All qualified applicants must submit an application. The program provides hands-on work experience, as well as professional and spiritual formation as interns discern vocations in public life. Our full and part-time programs follow the schedule of an academic year.

Program Description

Ethnic Young Adult Interns

The Ethnic Young Adult Internship (EYA) program is for young justice seekers willing to unpack their faith and identity while working with an organization engaged in addressing social injustices. Interns are placed with advocacy, public policy, nonprofit and grassroots organizations where they work four days a week.

EYAs engage in weekly seminars designed to explore a wide variety of social issues, while also learning about The United Methodist Church’s history of pursuing social holiness. Interns live in community with one another and participate in weekly devotions.

EYAs have the unique opportunity to learn about the role of Church and Society at the United Nations by visiting our UN office. EYA Interns also get to visit a UMC historical site.
