Did you know Made in the Streets offers internships for college students (and college-aged individuals) with a desire to serve and a taste for adventure? There's more information on our Internships page, but in brief, here are the qualifications and requirements:
Recently we asked a few of our past interns what they learned, how they grew, and why YOU should apply to work with us as an intern:
“Being a remote intern for Made in the Streets was a new experience for me and it was nothing but good! I was able to learn more about the organization and how much good work they are doing in Kenya. Even though I have not been to Kenya with MITS (yet), I was touched by the stories of students and staff. If God hasn't called you specifically to Kenya but you still want to be involved in MITS, then the remote social media internship is a perfect way to do just that!”
Katie Harvey, MITS Social Media Intern
"God allowed me to stand in awe of His wonder and His glory for three months. I am still processing all the ways I was affected and changed by my time at MITS. One thing that is certain is that God has opened my eyes to new aspects of His wonders and beauty
in all aspects of His creation."
Winn Thomas, MITS Teacher’s Aide
"MITS is spilling over with incredible and uniquely individual stories of love, hope, wonder, and endurance and it was truly an honor to spend my summer as a witness to these stories and to be trusted enough to share them with the world. Through my internship, I was able to grow not only as a photographer and a writer, but also as a person profoundly dedicated to making each person feel heard, respected, and valued. I highly recommend applying to this internship if you are an adventurous and creative person committed to accurately and honestly portray all of the amazing things happening every day at MITS."
Hillary Sturgeon, @readyforchillary, MITS Storyteller
"Interning with MITS, as their filmmaker, challenged me creatively and expanded my perspective (which, as an American, was quite limited). I learned how vital it is to partner with the community that you're representing on film—to make something that they're proud of and to make something you know is important to share. But my favorite part was learning that good documentary storytelling always starts with knowing and loving people well. And after my time in Nairobi, I love the students and staff at MITS like nothing else."
Meredith Mansfield, @shesthemansfield, MITS Filmmaker
