Learn & Serve Internships
Learn & Serve (Campus Programs) Internship
SIFAT often needs interns for our campus programming. Interns are college graduates looking to do a gap year at a nonprofit organization that is active around the world. Your internship will incorporate all three of our areas of expertise: Training, Missions & our Campus. You will physically reside on the gorgeous 176-acre campus, learning and participating in all that goes on here (our farm to table programs, our appropriate technology training, our global village and slum experiences). You will experience training in global hunger, malnutrition, contaminated water and more. You will learn what it means to be a missionary in a developing world and you will participate in missions as well. There is no other program like it. Having a love for the outdoors is not a requirement, but is strongly recommended. We are looking for teachable, humble, missions loving college graduates. As missionaries around the world raise their funds, you will also be taught how to raise your own salary. Your housing will be provided.

Summer Farm to Table Internship
SIFAT is offering a 3-month internship with our Farm to Table Garden Program for the 2020 summer growing season. This internship provides a unique opportunity to learn by working in the garden and preparing food in the kitchen at the same time. Working in collaboration with the Agricultural Coordinator and food service personnel, the Farm to Table Intern will contribute to each step of the produce’s life, from building the soil to the finishing touches in the kitchen!
Learn & Serve Summer Staff
Through SIFAT’s Learn & Serve summer training experience, North American youth are provided with an opportunity to experience first-hand how the majority of the world lives. Through experiences and biblical teachings, we encourage students to have a global mindset, and to examine how God wants us to love each of His people in the world, both internationally and locally.
Each summer, God composes a team of people who lead authentic lifestyles to model the calling He has placed on each of our lives through 1 John 3:17. Whether it’s teaching a student or serving behind the scenes in the kitchen, each person on the team is called to reveal God’s compassionate love to the participants at Learn & Serve. You can be a part of the Learn & Serve summer staff through a variety of ways, including becoming a counselor, worship leader, media coordinator, or a member of our volunteer staff called “flex staff”.
At the core of the Learn & Serve summer training experience is a team of college-age counselors. These counselors lead authentic lifestyles year-round, and during the summer they serve as an example of God’s love to each of the participants at Learn & Serve. Counselors will be leading small groups, facilitating team building activities, teaching appropriate technology, giving testimonies and leading students through simulations in SIFAT’s rural village and urban slums. While leading the students through each of these activities, counselors will support, encourage, challenge, and journey alongside their students.
