Deadline for applications is Sept. 15, 2008.
Each intern will be assigned to one of the WCC’s working areas — accompanying churches in situations of conflict; youth and ecumenical relationships; visitors program and media relations; faith, science, technology and ethics; and the WCC Commission on Faith and Order.
Interns will carry out their tasks in cooperation with program staff and under individualized supervision. During their stay in Geneva, each intern is expected to plan an ecumenical project to implement in his or her home context when they return in February 2010.
“Successful candidates,” promotional materials say, “are people committed to the ideals of the ecumenical movement who will bring their energy, commitment, and a fresh vision to their specific work assignment.”
Applicants must send, along with their application, background information about their church or Christian youth network that will help them in implementing their proposed ecumenical project.
