The Details

Focus on the Family Internships are offered during the summer and last 10 weeks. During those 10 weeks, you will learn and work alongside seasoned professionals in your own discipline, plus interact with interns and full-time staff members in other departments. You’ll cap off your internship by showing your summer project work at an all-ministry expo, which you’ll want to include in your portfolio or on your resume. 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 keep up to date on our job board! Applications for Summer 2022 will be posted November 1, 2021. See the FAQs below or email [email protected] for more information.

FAQs

The internship will start on May 31, 2022 and the last day will be August 5, 2022. Each week your office hours will be Monday – Friday 8:00 – 5:00, with some of that time dedicated to Bible study and Seminars. 

Although interns are not paid, we do give each intern a $2000 honorarium over the summer! We also provide daily lunch during the work week, many weekend activities and housing for those who need it.

For students without family in the area, we can provide a Host Family 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.

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.

Yes, each intern is responsible for their own transportation to and from Colorado Springs, as well as the entire time they are in Colorado Springs. It is required that each intern have their own car over the summer.

The most important thing to bring is a car! Transportation is the responsibility of each intern. 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 30-35 interns.

Yes, you are welcome to apply for more than one internship, but if you are interested in multiple we would recommend only applying to two or three. This will help us narrow down what you are interested in and what you should be considered for.

The applications do not have a specific deadline, but are instead open until filled. We recommend applying early as some internships fill very quickly!
