The Makarios Internship Program exists to equip Christ followers to live out their faith in daily life. Our program is tailored to growth in all directions. We cultivate leadership skills to enhance confidence in the areas the Lord has gifted our interns in. We welcome young adults to join us for a summer in the Dominican Republic.  


Our international internship program exists to give men and women exposure to living in a cross-cultural setting.  Our interns will gain valuable insight into missionary life, deepen their relationship with God through one-on-one mentorship, and develop leadership skills as they lead a variety of outreach events and participate with ministry teams throughout the summer.  Interns will have opportunities to impact the lives of team members while also developing empowering relationships with local staff, students and families.  They will also learn about poverty and education through the lens of the Word of God, and how to respond within the context of a team.

Applicants proficient in Spanish will be given higher preference but while Spanish is highly recommended it is not required.  Internship opportunities include serving to further the vision and mission of the Makarios School and Family Empowerment Program by specifically working with the Groups Ministry department on community outreach programs (VBS, Sports Camps, and Special Projects), and working directly with a variety of age ranges, cultures and team members traveling to the Dominican Republic on a Ministry Trip.
