Internship Programme

Interns work in a WCC programme for a one-year period. During this time, they gain work experience in an ecumenical field and are given the tools to take this back to the local level.

The second emphasis of the internship programme is on ecumenical formation and community-building: as a group, the interns learn how to work in a multicultural and multiconfessional environment.

Each intern also develops an ecumenical project to be implemented back in their home contexts.

By providing young people with a rich international experience of community-building, team work and ecumenical learning, this activity strengthens both local churches and the ecumenical movement as a whole.

Please note: The application process for the 2012-13 intake of the WCC internship programme is closed. Information about the next intake will be shared in late 2013. It is advised you sign up for WCC news (available by email or as an RSS feed) in order to receive the notice of when applications will be accepted.
