YFC INTERNS is a part-time gap year programme for 18-25 year olds that provides a unique opportunity to grow as an individual and leader, deepen your relationship with God and get involved in an innovative, dynamic ministry with young people on the margins and outside of church.
How does it work?
We believe in building up and encouraging young leaders who are passionate about seeing young people transformed by encountering Jesus.
As an intern you will be part of the wider YFCNI team as well as being an integral part of a local centre, working on the ground with young people in a placement location. You will be managed and supported by the Centre Support Coordinator for YFCNI. Your placement Centre Coordinator will carry out direct ministry supervision as you work alongside staff and volunteers involved in delivery of programmes on the ground.
The Intern programme is part-time, 3 or 4 days a week and runs from September ’22 to mid-August ’23. The first few weeks will involve training, mostly delivered at YFCNI National Office, Belfast.
Unfortunately YFCNI cannot offer accommodation, so it is important that you can get to and from your placement location using your own form of transport. A small mileage allowance will be given.
The Internship costs £750. We encourage you to invite your family, friends and church community to get behind you and support you prayerfully and financially as you embark on the internship for a year.
Placement locations for 22/23 include:
Crumlin YFC – Craigavon YFC – Ards Peninsula YFC – Comber YFC (The Net) – Donaghadee YFC – YFCNI Comms & Media, Belfast
You can read more about each placement location below. If you choose to apply, you will be asked to give a first and second preference for where you would like to be placed. We will do our best to work with you and each centre to place you in one of your preferred placements as far as possible.
We are really excited and expectant for YFCNI Interns 22/23 and would love you to join us. If you want any more information, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
