RE: The FFWPU- USA Internship Program Has Arrived! Calling For Interns
The FFWPU-USA Internship Program offers Young Adults of the Unification Faith a wide array of opportunities to experience our movement, connect to its vision and purpose, develop a particular set of skills or pursue a chosen career. Please help make youth in your area aware of this program.
The program is designed for youth 18 years of age or older who may not be attracted to or active in the traditional "frontline" or experience-based programs. As an intern they can spend a few weeks, a summer or a year to gain professional experience in a particular field, learn a new skill, investigate their faith through practical experience, or just do something meaningful.
Internships come in a variety of shapes and sizes: working with an "affiliated organization;" assisting at a Unificationist school; a short-term outreach program in the Middle East or on Capitol Hill. Interns can learn to: make films, manage a horse farm, teach character education, develop marketing and communications, or work with FFWPU in their local district.
These can be structured according to the internís availability and the organizationís need. FFWPUís Internship Program identifies available internships and screens them according to basic spiritual and professional standards. We recruit and orient interns according to an established code of conduct. Candidates can apply to organizations with positions matching their skills or interests. We work to assure that interns are mentored and supported and monitor each internship experience.
