Intern With The Sanctuaries DC this Summer

By Annie Gonzalez Milliken


A summer jam with The Sanctuaries DC.

You are Needed for This Unique Ministry in Washington, DC

You're needed. Yes, you, the young adult who is looking for something meaningful to do this summer, you with a commitment to multicultural community building and spirituality. You're the one.

"The most pressing needs of our time," Parker Palmer writes, "demand community in response." How else are we to truly know the sacredness of life unless we live in a community where we can be persons, and not merely instruments or roles, to one another?

You're needed by a community that aspires to practice what Palmer preaches. A community of creative people from diverse racial and religious backgrounds. A community of dreamers and risk-takers promoting spiritual empowerment and social change through the creative arts. You're needed this summer in Washington, DC.

The Sanctuaries is probably unlike any other spiritual community you've encountered – in large part because of the emphasis we place on collaboration. We are stubbornly and steadfastly convinced that every voice matters. And as a result, our community life is highly participatory. Not only does everyone have an opportunity to share their story at our gatherings, but each person helps to shape the story of what our community can become.

That's where you come in!

This summer, we're partnering with the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice to host an intern who is passionate about community organizing, racial justice, and the creative arts. We're looking for someone who is ready to step up into a real leadership role and make a real difference. You won't be filing papers or fetching coffee. You'll be in the streets and part of the team.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to gain one-of-a-kind experience in building multicultural community through the creative arts. We need you. And we want to empower you to make the impact we know you can.

Get all the details and apply today.
