Internships

IMG_7169.jpg

The Net was founded by college students, so we know that energy, passion, and drive you bring to the table. During the school year and the summer we bring on interns who want to change their community and have a ton of fun doing it!

Opportunities:

NET Internship

Our Net Interns, whom we lovingly call our “Ninterns,” take a hands-on role in our weekly relationship-building serve events and behind the scenes preparation, as well as assist in the planning and execution of our special events. These interns will get a close look into non-profit management, learn organizational leadership and grow spiritually.

Worthy Co. Internship

Our Worthy Co. Interns will learn firsthand the inner-workings of a start-up, digital marketing and retail production in an expeditious entrepreneurial environment. They will tangibly help a mission-oriented small business grow and scale, while transforming the lives of vulnerable women in our city.

All Net & Worthy Co interns are required to live in Fort Worth during their internship and are expected to work 12 hours a week during the school year. Net Summer interns are 20 hours a week (Worthy Co Summer interns are 10+ hours), with every hour going towards impacting our city.

What you'll leave with

In addition to the satisfaction of improving lives across our community and creating lifelong friendships with those around you, our hope for interns is three-fold:

Discipleship

We want our interns to look and love more like Jesus. Over the course of the internship, The Net will create opportunities for personal growth and development resulting in interns growing into more full image-bearers of Christ.

Leadership

We want our interns to develop into healthy Christian leaders. This internship will equip interns with skills and opportunities that will allow interns to display their leadership capabilities.

Service

The Net serves people experiencing poverty. As a Net intern you will as well! Our goal is to teach best practices and serve our friends experiencing poverty in a gospel-centered way pursuing holistic poverty alleviation.

Former Interns

Where are they now?

Our Net interns accomplish amazing things while they’re here, but they continue to change the world long after they leave our program. Check out what some former interns are up to these days!

Available Positions

In addition to the job descriptions below, interns will have an opportunity to learn from The Net staff members, visit other organizations, plan group events, and work on strategies as a team.

While our internships are unpaid, opportunities to receive college credit are available if approved by your college or university. Plus you will make best friends for life and you can’t put a price on that! ;)

Oh yeah, also come prepared with a prodigious love of coffee, because that’s kind of our thing.

Every summer, we take the kiddos from Ladera on field trips to continue building relationships with them throughout the summer and to provide space for them to just have fun!⁠

Refugee children often have a “bucket” of difficult or traumatic memories as a result of fleeing their countries and have had to grow up much faster than any child should. ⁠⠀
.⁠
Our goal is to counter these negative memories with positive ones by giving them opportunities to laugh, play, and enjoy their friends!⁠⠀
.⁠
On our Zoo field trip, our mentors got to reconnect with kids who regularly attend our after-school Net Club kids and shared their excitement over seeing animals in the exhibits from their home countries.⁠
.⁠
By asking questions about their lives before the United States and sharing in their joy over memories of their home, we communicate that they are welcome here and that their culture is something to be celebrated and not to be ashamed of! #WeWelcomeRefugees #LoveYourNeighbor ⁠⠀
