The Intern-in-Service program at the Catholic Student Center at Washington University is a volunteer campus ministry initiative geared towards recent college graduates who seek not only to grow personally and spiritually, but also to form students intellectually, morally, socially, and spiritually. By helping with programming, Masses, and various responsibilities at the CSC, interns will welcome all students and empower student leaders wherever possible. Interns provide a hospitable presence--both on campus and at the CSC--and help students connect life and faith in tangible ways. Through spiritual direction, formation with Fr. Gary and Troy, and one-on-one supervision, interns discern the next step in their life journey and learn how to become active participants in parish life and moral leaders in their careers.
Daily Tasks and Responsibilities
Your role at the CSC will constantly evolve to a professional/peer mentor role. A full time internship is ideal. If you currently work some hours outside of here, those hours should not conflict. In addition, it is important that you be in good physical, psychological and spiritual health throughout the year. Each intern "year" is Aug. 15-May 31. We'd need you by early-mid August for training. Some interns have worked here over the summer as well.
One of the many opportunities you might want to take advantage of while you are at the CSC, is to write your thoughts into our CSC Blog. Over the years, many people have reflected on their own journeys of faith, and we invite you to do the same. To begin, simply contact a staff member with your request.
Stipend and Housing Information:
During the length of your tenure here, the CSC will provide housing and food for all interns. Interns will receive a $400 stipend to be used for cell phone, transportation, and other living expenses. Young adults can now stay on their parents' health care plan until they are 26 years old. If an intern applicant is not covered in that way, part of an intern's stipend is to be used for basic health care.
We will provide daily meals. If you have a car, it would be very helpful for getting around town. As an added bonus, federal loans can also be deferred.
Applications and interviews are done in the spring semester. We would consider doing interviews fall semester if someone wanted us to consider an early decision. In the meantime, feel free to download and fill out an application!
