About the Internship:

The main purpose of the Lakota Journey Summer Internship is to provide an accessible next step for those who feel the tugging of the Holy Spirit to explore their relationship with God and the Rosebud and reservation further.

Throughout the 8 weeks of the internship, college-aged students live in Christ-centered community and volunteer with organizations on the reservation related to their post-secondary area of study. Through it all, they seek what God’s vision is for the Rosebud Reservation and what their personal relationship with it may be.

Interns may have a role during the summer months helping to support church groups in their ministry endeavors.

Intern Debriefing: This is the day we wrap up the summer experience before interns are sent off to wherever the Spirit has led them next!
