The Upper House Intern Program seeks to equip undergraduate students with a deeper understanding of the ways faith, vocation, and education can be thoughtfully integrated.
Specifically, Upper House offers undergraduate students a professional setting to participate in the full scope of event production—from ideation to presentation—and the day-to-day operations of a nonprofit ministry. Upper House interns experience a unique melding of professional skill development, spiritual formation, and mentorship as they gain appreciation for God’s investment in their skills, roles, and work.
The Upper House Intern Program is a paid internship. As part of the program, all interns will weekly (1) attend Intern Team Meetings for reading and discussion on spiritual formation; (2) serve as host and supervisor of Upper House space for external ministry, campus, and community groups; and (3) provide guest services for Upper House events.
Interns can expect to work 10 hours per week in one of the following professional roles directly supervised by an Upper House Staff mentor.
The Administration Internship focuses on the backbone of Upper House’s operations—creating and implementing systems to enhance efficiency, organization, and ministry. Mentored by the Director of Business Administration, interns gain experience in QuickBooks, the Upper House CRM, form creation, and the communications database. Full job description here.
The Hospitality Internship focuses on incorporating Upper House’s ethos of hospitality into every component of the event-production process. Mentored by the Hospitality & Student Enrichment Manager, interns gain experience in preparing the guest experience, defining the purpose of gathering, event and travel logistics, Open Study operations, and space organization.
