We’re looking for a college sophomore or above who is passionate about Summit’s vision of “cultivating a rising generation to champion a biblical worldview.” Our team loves to work hard and has a blast serving together! We want to add an intern to our team who is flexible, self-motivated, loves jumping from one project to the next, and is comfortable with sharing Summit’s mission with new acquaintances.  The Advancement Intern must be available to work on-site at Summit’s Headquarters through the entirety of the internship. (We understand that situations may arise during the internship that may require our intern to leave for a few days. We will do our best to work with applicants if necessary.)

WHAT YOU’LL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR:

The Advancement Intern will work with the Advancement Department on various projects such as (but not limited to): 

  • Assisting with research of potential fundraising opportunities

  • Creating compelling ways to connect with donors
  • Assisting with fundraising event planning

WHAT WILL YOU GET OUT OF IT? 

While this is a full-time job, we want our interns to experience a summer of growth like they’ve never had before. You’ll get out what you put into this position, and we’re here to walk with you as you grow! As a team, we succeed and fail together. We celebrate our wins and show grace and learn from our mistakes. You’ll be encouraged, challenged, mentored, and prayed over. You’ll take ownership over projects and get real-life experience that you can take to the next season of your life!
