Now is the time to apply for our Ethnic Young Adult summer internship
The EYA program is for young justice-seekers willing to unpack their faith and identity while working with an organization engaged in addressing social injustices.
Church and Society’s Ethnic Young Adult (EYA) program will run from June 2- July 28, 2018. This eight week intensive program is designed for young justice-seekers who are willing to put their faith into action as they work in the intersections of faith, advocacy, and social change.
EYAs work four days a week with Church and Society’s coalition and placement partners. At these placements interns serve with advocacy, public policy, nonprofit and grassroots organizations. For an idea of where these placements could be our placement partners from last summer were: Creation Justice Ministries, Church World Service, FairVote, Interfaith Power and Light, Democracy Initiative, National Religious Partnership for the Environment, Results, and the NAACP.
With God’s grace and guidance, the NORTHEASTERN JURISDICTION NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRIES COMMITTEE will serve as the body that gathers to listen to and support fellow Native United Methodists, partners with all Native Peoples, educates non-Natives, and advocates for Native issues with our strong Native communities in the Northeastern Jurisdiction and beyond.
