WCF Internships, Summer 2019

WCF believes that more can be done to grow faith in our North American community and worldwide. We are developing innovative tools for that critical task. Some of these tools will help bolster ecclesias. Others will help us all put faith at the center of decision and doing in every chapter of our lives. Still others will fortify our programs to nurture faith in our youth, especially as they enter college or the workforce.

To this end, WCF is seeking three summer interns to help move the work forward.

This internship program for 2019 will last 12 weeks, beginning on or around June 1. Interns selected for the program are expected to be available to work between 20 - 30 hours each week for at least 10 weeks of the 12-week duration of their assignment. Interns will report on a regular basis to a supervisor. Interns will receive assistance developing their skills to complete assignments.
