Goal of Program: 
The Episcopal Urban Intern Program (EUIP), in sunny Los Angeles, is a year-long service learning project of the Jubilee Consortium (a group of inner city Episcopal parishes in LA working together to effect meaningful social change within their communities). EUIP’s mission is to raise up a new generation of change leaders for the church and the world who will spend their whole lives working to expand God’s reign of peace and justice for all people. EUIP prepares young adults to become such leaders. Each fall, EUIP gathers a new class of interns from across the United States to live in Christian community, develop meaningful relationships within local Episcopal and Lutheran congregations, and work for change by serving full-time in some of LA County’s most innovative and effective social service agencies. These agencies provide interns with meaningful engagement opportunities in exploring the problems of and possible solutions to social injustice.
Type of Placement: 
EUIP currently partners with agencies committed to addressing: Homelessness, unemployment, immigration & refugee services, disparities in urban education & access to college prep, special education services, at-risk youth, college chaplaincy, health justice & medical/legal advocacy. EUIP is a diverse group composed of passionate recent college graduates with hearts for change. Join us!
