Get Hands-On Job Experience 

The Unity in Greensboro internship program strives to provide interns with meaningful experiences and intentional skill building opportunities. This internship offers a variety of challenging projects to explore the field of nonprofit and mission-centric careers. Averaging 12 hours per week, each intern selected will gain experience in across areas while also developing their own project. Interns will meet together weekly and collaborate throughout the summer. 


In any internship, the goal is to gain work experience and career skills. At Unity in Greensboro, we take that as far as we can. Interns are invited to sit in on meetings, work with all levels of leadership, network with community connections, and take advantage of any relevant training opportunities that arise. Unity in Greensboro has a small staff and relies heavily on volunteers, so interns will get to learn skills they may not have access to in a larger company with more narrowly focused roles. The UIG team loves working with students and makes a point to learn names, stories, and interests to help connect students with any advantages or networks. All of the UIG internships are highly customized to offer skills and experiences relevant to the students’ fields of study and career goals. Laughter, joy, and creativity are part of the daily experience at UIG!


Two paid internship positions are available this summer: a young adult position and a teen position. The young adult intern will focus on skill building primarily around adult and young adult programs offered during their internship, while the teen intern will focus primarily on youth and family programs. Both interns will gain experience working with each age group on Sundays.


In addition to internships, Unity in Greensboro is also able to work with students for practicum experiences, service-learning programs, and volunteer hours.

“Working at Unity was an amazing experience and offered me a place to not just learn new skills but sharpen the ones I currently have. As a public health major with interest in healthcare marketing this was the perfect place to see those two worlds combine. What makes working at Unity so great is that I am able to make meaningful contributions and see my hard work pay off. I think this is a great place for anyone trying to get their start and get real world experience.”

“Volunteering at Unity has been a really cool experience for me, and something that is different from anything else I’ve done. I’m interested in global health, working with kids, and serving the community, so this was a perfect place for me to explore all three of those. All of the staff are incredibly kind and the space is very welcoming. I was able to make meaningful connections with a diverse group of people, and enhance my communication skills. Unity is a great place, not only for the community around them, but for new volunteers as well. The community outreach that Unity offers is amazing, and I think this is a great place for anyone trying to get a beneficial work experience.”

Unity in Greensboro is a progressive spiritual community that takes a practical, real-world approach to philosophical interpretations of Christian texts. An example of this would be a lesson on bullying for children that teaches that all people are worthy of love because they are  spiritual beings having a human experience. Meditation, affirmation, prayer, inner healing, and personal responsibility are key teachings within Unity’s belief system. Unity in Greensboro is actively LGBTQIA+ affirming and supports leadership for all identities. Interns do not have to identify with our beliefs to work here, but some areas of focus will involve promoting these beliefs to program participants.
