The 2024 Internship application will be open October 1, 2023.
There have been changes in our program, so please review the information below.
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Internship 2024 Program! Our Internship program begins the first week of June and continues through the end of July. As you can see below, our summer interns are a crucial part of The Crossover CUPS Mission (CCM) during the summer.
Cups Summer Interns (CSI’s) prepare and lead mission activities on the ground, build lifelong friendships with the Dominican people in our villages, translate, and work closely with our on-the-ground missionaries and Dominican Student leaders; these are just a few of the many roles and opportunities our CSI’s have. Our CSI’s are the team leaders for teams that come down from the States or Canada. They are embedded with those teams to help them connect well to the mission on the ground.
They also spend a few weeks at work in our administrative office located in Greenville, South Carolina. CSI’s have the opportunity to build social media content, create team-training resources, and host fundraisers are just a few of the other responsibilities that CSI’s will have.
CSI’s will also have the opportunity to be plugged into a local church to serve in kids or youth ministry. While in Greenville, DSS will live with a host family in the Greenville area.
We look forward to reviewing the Summer 2023 Program applications!
