Know BEFORE You Apply
A Third Place Community Foundation can offer semi-rough, missional-trip style lodging at their community center for no cost to the interns. In addition, there is a month-by-month small house (525 sq. ft, $425/month) option in the community where past ministers and others have stayed while working with us; utilities are extra and appliances will need to be arranged.


Having access to a car is helpful but not necessary; bicycle and bus fare will be provided by A Third Place Community Foundation. Alternatively, rides are often available with others, depending on where the selected interns live.


Interns are eligible for a stipend of no more than $1,500 from UUCSJ to assist with food, local public transit, and incidentals, depending on a variety of factors. Applicants are encouraged to seek other sources of funding, including grants from colleges and foundations, congregational support, and Faithify, or other crowd sourcing fundraisers.


Message from Rev. Ron Robinson: We loved our first summer internship; we are excited to continue developing it as we develop our site as a mission site for churches and groups and universities and individuals to come experience, learn, and grow with us; we work often with these institutions locally and from across the country and world. We are a place-based non-profit and a missional community, as opposed to a specific-niche non-profit, so we are adaptable to fitting the passions of the intern in with the many issues of justice that are alive in our place.
