As a junior or senior in college, choosing a summer internship is an important decision. You might be looking for career-shaping experience in your chosen field. You may be longing for an adventurous season spent exploring the great outdoors. You’re probably hoping to make lasting friendships with other young adults who share your passion and values.

That’s where Compassion’s summer internship program comes in.

As one of the nation’s largest non-profit organizations, we’re looking for 30-40 college students who are energized by the idea of using their skillset to help release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Gain hands-on experience, receive professional and personal development from supervisors and mentors, and meet other like-minded young people from all over the country. Outside of work, get ready to explore the Rocky Mountains and all the natural beauty Colorado has to offer. We’re excited to have you join our team!
