International Missions Internships

Young Adult International Programs

YMI offers unique mission opportunities and internships to young adults (ages 18-26) designed to deepen your relationship with Christ, help you translate your degree into practical ministry experience, expose you to other cultural worldviews, and help you learn how to integrate your faith with real-world issues.

Our program is more than a mission trip. It is a real-world experience of coming alongside missionaries and local pastors to build capacity while learning valuable lessons. We challenge you to not just GO but to learn, return and respond to what God is doing. We challenge you to develop into a life-long disciple of Christ, using the catalyst of short- term missions (2 weeks to 2 years). All of internships include training and debriefing experiences.

Listed below are some of our featured sites. Many of our ministry locations can host more than one individual at a time. Click on the featured ministries to learn more. To begin the discussion about the internship that best fits you, please use our internship builder.
