Greetings from Prison Fellowship,
We continue our recruiting efforts for our exciting Summer Internship Program! Over 20 summer internships were available for the summer of 2010 and now only the three positions below remain, thanks to your help! Prison Fellowship is a Christian ministry with our National Office located in Lansdowne, Virginia, 25 miles outside of Washington, DC. Our opportunities listed below are offered at $7.25 per hour with local housing available for a limited number of students from outside of the area.
Prison Fellowship internships provide students with practical work experience in a Christian environment, while structuring the internship to meet the students’ academic requirements. As Christians, all interns also participate in stimulating events such as visits to Capitol Hill, meeting with Christian political leaders, and worldview Bible studies.
