Internships

Elizabeth, photography intern

“I wanted to do something I really cared about in a field where I would learn a lot, in an environment I’ve never experienced before. I wanted both professional and spiritual growth happening side by side. And that [happened here]! I love the relationships and connections I made with other people.”
— Elizabeth, photography intern

Today, at least 2,000 people groups still need a Bible translation started in their languages! Wycliffe believes the Word of God can transform lives when people encounter it in their own language.

Whether you’re looking to earn college credit, explore missions for your future or just make a difference in the world right now, we’d love to talk with you!

Just as God has gifted you with a unique set of passions and skills, we have a unique internship for you! Our internships are crafted to best fit your interests while meeting essential needs around the world. No two internships are alike!

Angela, IT intern

“This internship [gave] me both real-life work experience and an understanding of how work and missions are related. One thing only Wycliffe [taught] me was the importance of Bible translation. Whether or not I’m involved in that field in the future, it [gave] me special insight on the many ways people are serving God in the United States and overseas. The value in this internship is not only work-related — the people and community at Wycliffe [are] entirely worth the experience itself.”
— Angela, IT intern
