1-Year Full-Time Internships

Lifelines Internship

Come join us in using outdoor experiences to help reach college students. We take people on adventures like rock climbing, snowshoeing or whitewater rafting—not just for adventure sake—but to help challenge how they think about themselves, others and God.

Explore. Experience. Share.

Our internship program helps you explore new places, friendships and skills, experience our trips, expeditions and guide schools as well as learn to share your faith with others. Come sharpen your technical and group facilitation skills, but more than that, learn the heart of outdoor ministry by growing spiritually and relationally with God, others and yourself through the Lifelines community.

  1. Yearlong Cru Internship
