Cause 4 Life Internships
Capstone Internships provide graduate students with the opportunity to complete their final capstone project in partnership with Joni and Friends. This program is meant to assist early career professionals (i.e. OTD, DPT, and Special Educators) in finding the pathway to connect their vocation to God’s global mission. Every capstone intern at Joni and Friends is granted the opportunity to use their gifts and talents to further minister to those living with disability.
Corporate Interns serving at a Joni and Friends Area Ministry Office will have the unique opportunity to gain insight into the insiders view of a disability ministry, non-profit environment. Interns will gain perspective of our unique culture of integration across our departments and Field Offices. Interns will be paired with an Area Ministry Office, harmonizing their area of interest and skill sets with their assigned position. Every intern at Joni and Friends is granted opportunity to use their gifts and talents to further ministry to the disabled.
