Internships

Meaningful Work.

Meaningful Experience.

Interning at the Little Rock Compassion Center

We’re on the lookout for bright, energetic students and recent grads to fill a wide variety of semester-long internships. Our staff is made up of people from a diverse range of backgrounds and skill sets, and we find that every intern class is too. While we work in an urban setting, our goal is for our interns to be prepared for practical service and ministry in whatever field they choose.

Some roles are on the front lines of ministering to men, women and children experiencing crisis. Some are administrative or community focused. But every role is vital to advancing the Kingdom of God in Little Rock. We give interns serious responsibilities and challenge them to leave a lasting impact on this city. If you choose to apply and intern with us, don’t plan on a semester of making coffee, organizing or filing – we’ve got big plans for you.

Why Should I Intern at the Mission?

Our internship program is uniquely designed to maximize not just your work experience, but your personal growth too! During your time at the Compassion Center, you will acquire practical, hands-on work experience, be discipled by staff, and build unforgettable relationships. Each internship is designed to benefit both the student and the Mission in the most meaningful ways possible. If you desire an internship in a ministry setting that offers challenging and inspiring opportunities, the Compassion Center might be the place for you.

How Long are the Internships?

We offer semester-long internships over spring, summer, and fall terms. All of which can be used for school credit or to advance your workplace experience. Dates typically follow a school calendar and will be posted as available.

What Are the Hours of Internship Positions

Internship positions are usually full time with a schedule of 40 hours per week under our normal business hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm with minor variances. We also work with in-semester students who need part-time internships for credit. If you have a special circumstance or classes that require you work less than 40 hours per week, simply note the need for accommodations on your internship application.

Are Interns Paid?

Yes! Our interns are highly valued, and we provide a weekly stipend or paycheck for our interns. We also try to accommodate food and transportation needs for those who are not from the Little Rock area.
