University Affiliated Internships

Joni and Friends Cause 4 Life has and continues to develop University Affiliated internship opportunities where interns receive non-transferrable college credit through participating Universities for Cause 4 Life internship completion.  For more information, if you have questions, or if you would like to make University referrals for potential Cause 4 Life affiliation, please email us at

For students who are interested in transferable credit, visit the Beyond Suffering for College Credit page.

Funding Your Internship: Cause 4 Life is committed to resourcing all of our interns with modern tools for fundraising and team building. An online fundraising platform is available for every intern to share their heart and passion for disability ministry with potential donors, while seeking to raise funds to cover the cost of the internship. Interns can personalize their own fundraising page and easily keep up with their team’s progress.
