Domestic Internship Opportunities
Our international headquarters is located in Lynchburg, VA where we have a variety of internship positions available throughout the year for college and post-graduate.
-Summer Sports Ministry Internship-
Our summer soccer internship is an opportunity to be a missionary right where you are. By partnering with the local church, we share God’s love with communities all around Virginia through the avenue of sports. As a summer intern, you will be trained in sports ministry and then serve as a youth soccer coach as we run camps in various contexts and settings. By the time the internship concludes, you will be equipped to use your new skill-set for the glory of God in your own community and beyond!
-The Timothy Project-
The domestic Timothy Project initiative began in 2015 in Lynchburg Virginia as a way to engage campers aging out of the camp experience through coaching. The Timothy Project model domestically and internationally teaches servant leadership at its core. Campers are given the opportunity to assistant coaches during their internship and to attend all coaching events to learn alongside their elder coaches. We believe this will encourage these youth to stay connected to Sports Outreach, and their home churches as well as learn how to love and serve their community.
-Women’s Empowerment Ministry Assistant-
To Promote the Mission and Vision of the Women Empowerment ministry initiative with the overall goal of creating a movement of women who are mobilized to grow in Victorious living and support other young women in their practical, emotional and spiritual development.
