So……“What are you going to DO next year?”

Here at the Johnson Intern Program we believe young adults are asking a different question:

“Who do I want to BE?”

JIP is an eleven month program designed to help young adults discern the “voice” (life’s work) that is calling them, and to develop the skills required listen and respond.

JIP welcomes single young adults between the ages of 21 and 30 who are college graduates or young adults with comparable experience and who desire a year to serve others and to explore the spiritual/faith questions that bring meaning to life.

JIP creates a diverse community that strives to diminish the boundaries that typically divide humanity. To read more about JIP intentional community, click here and see the section "On Christian Community."

Our program opens each year in mid August and ends in mid June.


JIP is part of the Episcopal Service Corps, a network of diverse service programs and communities. Click here for the application form for all ESC programs. Please note that when you select JIP as the program you are applying to, on the second line there is a supplemental application to fill out.

JIP moved to a rolling deadline application format to accommodate those who need to plan early as well as those whose plans may take shape a bit later. We do not designate the number of slots that will be open for each round, and we always encourage you to check with us at any time, as slots may open up later for a variety of reasons. We always love to hear from potential candidates.

It is the applicant's responsibility to be sure that all pieces of the application have been received. We will NOT conduct interviews until an applicant's application is complete.
