Staff Internships & Diplomas

Choose your own adventure  

Flexible learning • Mentoring • Hands-On Experience

Our Staff Internship is a unique, hands-on training program. In addition to completing our Certificate IV in Christian Missions, you will have the opportunity to participate in self-paced, flexible vocational training where you can develop skills and knowledge in your passion areas. The Staff Internship is designed to give you an opportunity to apply what you are learning in your staff placement. Whether that is working on board our medical ship, serving in the kitchen, helping at Live FM (our very own radio station!) or developing your mentoring skills by staffing Youth and Training programs, the possibilities are endless!

You will also be fully immersed in a thriving missional community and will receive regular input and mentoring across the two years. Our Staff Internship Program is the ultimate way to gain a qualification and work experience all the while growing in your faith, vision, and purpose in a vibrant, live-learn environment.

"The DTS was life changing. I came to YWAM thinking I had my life figured out. This couldn’t be further from the truth. YWAM does a really good job at teaching on topics that youth face in life. On outreach, you will grow so much and God will do amazing things if you let Him. This experience has been the best thing I have ever done."
