Founded by Chuck Colson in 1976, Prison Fellowship has become the world's largest ministry to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families. We believe that communities can be safer through a more restorative approach to all those affected by crime. We work with prisons, churches, and legislators toward this vision—with an emphasis not on locking bad people up, but on bringing good people home.
If you'd like to join us in this mission of restoration, please consider applying for one of our exciting summer internships—which provide excellent experience for both undergraduate and graduate students. Prison Fellowship offers a professional—working environment within the national office of our Christian ministry located in Lansdowne, Virginia, near Washington, D.C.
Summer 2023 Internship Opportunities
The Summer Internship Program runs from Tuesday, May 30 through Friday, August 4. All of our internship opportunities are offered at $15.00/hour unless otherwise mandated by state law. Internships are 8 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays. A number of internships will be posted by January 20 so please re-visit this page.
Regarding any needs for one's academic requirements to obtain credit for the internship, our staff can coordinate with our interns as needed. Most internships are entirely virtual, and interns will attend staff meetings, ministry gatherings, social activities, and meet with leaders from the various ministry divisions during their time at Prison Fellowship.
