We’re passionate about equipping the next generation of Christian leaders to glorify God in their career field. This means founding our internships on both professional and spiritual growth. And while you’re gaining hands on experience, wouldn’t it be even better to spend your weekends adventuring around Colorado? We think so.
With Internships from Marketing to Counseling, Radio Broadcasting to IT, we offer valuable experience for a variety of majors. Join us, and 25-30 other interns, to build your resume, create lasting friendships, and strengthen your faith!
Focus on the Family Internships are offered during the summer and last 10 weeks. During those 10 weeks you will spend much of your time in your department, learning and working alongside seasoned professionals. Additionally, interns are involved in weekly inductive Bible study, seminars, and mentorship. And did we mention our camping trip, white-water rafting, and Friday night dinners? We’re serious about building community through weekend trips and outdoor activities.
We are looking for upperclassmen college students who want to use their careers to bring redemption in Christ to the world around them. If this sounds like you, make sure to check our job board November 1, 2018 when applications are posted! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or see the FAQs below for more information.
The internships run from June 3, 2019 – August 9, 2019. Each week your office hours will be Monday – Friday 8:00 – 5:00, with some of that time dedicated to Bible study and Seminars. We also offer a mid-summer vacation July 3, 2019 – July 7, 2019!
Our internships are not paid, so instead we try to provide for as many of your needs as we can during the summer: workday breakfast and lunch, many weekend activities, and housing for those who need it.
For students coming from out of state, we can find a Host Home for you to stay with. Host Homes are generous Focus volunteers who want to provide a home away from home for you. They are not expected to provide meals or transportation.
For interns with family in or near Colorado Springs, we expect that you will spend your summer living with them.
The first weekend at Focus consists of a group camping trip up in the mountains! We typically plan multiple day trips, white-water rafting, group dinners, and of course the time to relax at home and hunt down the Spring’s best coffee shops.
The top two items are a car and business casual attire! Both are required for interning at Focus. Besides that, a packing list will be sent out in the spring with more details.
While the numbers vary each summer, we typically range from 25-30 interns.
