Frequently Asked Questions

Interns serve for 12 months. An intern may choose to serve a second year but cannot serve for more than 24 months. At this point, an individual would need to choose between joining Cru in another capacity (such as Full-time staff, Part-time, Volunteer) or other opportunities.

We are continually looking for interns.  The internship is for one year.

Living expenses vary by each persons particular needs.

Our interns attend a required Intern Kick‐off Weekend conference that orients them to the process of raising support. After attending the conference, you have the tools needed to begin raising your support and have the next 3‐4 months to raise it.
