Internship Program

Are you a current student or recent graduate interested in faith and social justice? Do you want to lift up the voice of Franciscans in the public square? Join us and intern with the Franciscan Action Network (FAN) for a semester or for the summer!

FAN’s Internship Program is a 3-6 month educational and professional development experience that introduces you to faith-rooted advocacy, community organizing and church engagement. You will learn about the role of faith in public life, and how we use advocacy and activism to translate Catholic Social Teaching principles into action. Based at the Franciscan Monastery, you will be welcomed into the family of Franciscans and Franciscan-hearted people.

As an intern, you will receive close mentorship from FAN staff and work in one or more of the following areas: Climate and Economic Justice, Immigration, Peacemaking, and organization of Franciscan Justice Circles. While the nature of the work means that each day could be different, you will have the opportunity to develop skills in coalition-building, organizing public or on-line discussions, legislative research, community outreach, development and policy advocacy. Interns should expect to attend occasional events outside of normal working hours.

Please email your resume and cover letter to Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. If a candidate is in the Washington, D.C. area and requires housing, room and board at a local community house as well as metro expenses to and from work meetings and events will be covered.

FAN is a grassroots organization amplifying the justice efforts of Franciscans and Franciscan-hearted people around the country.
