Are you interested in traveling globally, serving the nations, and developing your leadership skills?  Each year we offer internships for college students who want to serve overseas during the summer, helping us lead our Group Treks, which are our group mission trips for middle, high school, and college groups.

Each college student will serve on a team of 3-5 in a pre-assigned location.  Pre-summer training takes place both online and a few days in Nashville, TN prior to your June departure.  The application deadline is March 15.  Every student will submit their internship fee listed below by May 1.

Check with your college to see if they will offer you school credit for interning overseas with Trek-X.  Many universities require service hours or cross-cultural immersion experiences as part of your elective credit hours, of which this would certainly qualify.  We’ll gladly sign off on whatever forms they require for you to receive credit.
