UFM is excited about welcoming interns into our family. We design each internship uniquely around the strengths and goals of the student and the current needs of our ministry.
Some Quotes from our previous interns…
“My internship with Urban Family Ministries during the 2014-2015 school year has been the most valuable experience I’ve had in college. A Community Leadership Major and Early Childhood Education Minor at Aquinas College, my time at UFM put in to practice what I’ve learned so far in my studies.
I was involved in most of the programs at UFM which allowed me to work directly with those being served. I became a part of the UFM family very quickly and was included in many activities. One of the most valuable aspects of my internship was attending weekly staff meetings, where I saw how the staff members worked together to plan and pray for the ministry. The staff was more than willing to answer my questions and assign me tasks to further my understanding of the organization.
The internship they created for me at UFM has given me a deep appreciation for their work, as well as shaped my view of the type of work I would like to be involved in after college. It was a rewarding experience and I would recommend getting involved and interning with Urban Family Ministries.”
“I had the opportunity to intern with Urban Family Ministries during the summer of 2015 working on communications to help further my Photojournalism degree. The staff welcomed me warmly and gave me the freedom to try out new ideas. I learned so much about putting my education into practice and what it’s like being in a ministry setting.
One of the most exciting moments of my internship was when I got to see my hard work come to life as we handed out promotional materials that I had designed to people at Unity Christian Music Festival. This small and close-knit office environment means you are hands-on in every project, and when you start something, you get to see it all the way to completion. I never felt like me or my work got lost, like it may have in a big organization where I would have just been a number. I got to make a real difference in a short amount of time and learn a lot along the way.”
