Internships at Interfaith Philadelphia

Throughout the year, Interfaith Philadelphia offers a diverse array of internship opportunities to both undergraduate and graduate students from across the country to work with us in the great city of Philadelphia. In the past, students have engaged in a number of exciting projects including:

 

 

Interfaith Philadelphia is seeking interns who are passionate about grassroots interfaith relations work and have excellent communications skills. Interns will work in collaboration with a diverse team of volunteers and Interfaith Philadelphia staff to implement agency programs and initiatives, and specific projects will be determined based on the intern's skills and interests, as well as the agency's most pressing needs.

 

Interns with Interfaith Philadelphia are invited to take part in weekly "learning lunches" where staff members and local experts from the business and academic world will present on an array of interesting topics that will further expose interns to the nuances of nonprofit and interfaith work. Interns can also expect individual mentoring from Interfaith Philadelphia staff and board members who will help interns to build professional skills such as communication, relationship-building, leadership, project-management, teamwork, persuasive writing, and personal impact development.

 

"After interning at Interfaith Philadelphia I not only had time to witness the many creative ways their work transcends acts of hatred towards others, but it strengthened me to stand up for the victimization of others because of my Christian faith."

 

- Nick, Princeton Seminary Student
