How can I become an intern at Sojourners?

Sojourners strives to provide an internship program of Christian discipleship, with a focus on life and faith, prayer and formation, and work and mission.

  • Life and Faith: We provide participants in our program with an opportunity to live together as a community in Washington, D.C. Together, the interns design the structures for maintaining their shared household. Through weekly house meetings, the interns worship, conduct business, pray, and experience city life as a community.
  • Prayer and Formation: We offer opportunities for personal growth and learning through a structured curriculum and monthly educational seminars on a wide range of topics designed to provoke and challenge the interns' perspectives on personal and social issues of faith. Interns are matched with mentors to provide spiritual and vocational guidance during their year-long experience. Time for personal reflection, contemplation, and community building is offered at retreats given throughout the year.
  • Work and Mission: Interns develop skills by working full-time in the ministry of Sojourners. Skilled staff members challenge interns as supervisors in a variety of departments including editorial, marketing and circulation and development. Also, volunteer opportunities are encouraged to enhance interns' experience of Washington D.C.'s diverse activities and culture.
