DR Missions has a yearly internship program held during the summer months, usually between May and August. Applications are open to anyone ages 16-21. We recommend that first time interns stay 3-4 weeks, while returning interns can stay for up to 8 weeks. Upon recieving approval for the program, interns should coordinate their trip dates with a DR Missions staff member prior to booking their flight!
Interns often work behind the scenes, serving not only the people of the Dominican Republic but the teams as well! An internship is NOT like being on a short term missions trip... It's so much better! Interns help lead activities and events, actively pray for short term team members, facilitate bonding between the kids and the teams, and help out around the house. If you are interested in being a full time missionary, this is a great first step to see what long term service feels like.
