WHAT IS A MISSIONAL INTERNSHIP?
Converge Missional Internships are hosted by a YWAM-sponsored organization. You may enroll as an individual or go as a team. When you enroll in the Converge Missional Internships Course as an Individual, we help you find the ideal host organization and the course gives you step-by-step instructions to complete a personalized missions project.
Are you a YWAMer? Converge is for any student or young adult, but there are opportunities for YWAMers too. If you are a YWAMer currently in university, Converge is ideal for pursuing Christ's calling. YWAM Staff can join our network as internship coordinators, Mentors, and Hosts.)
