Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT - The Johnson Intern Program is a sustainable and replicable opportunity for post- baccalaureate young adults to serve in an intensive experience of social justice, leadership training, communal living, and spiritual development in order to promote servant leadership within not-for-profit organizations and businesses with a socially responsible mission.


DESCRIPTION - The Johnson Intern Program (JIP)recruits young adult men and women (college graduates ages 21-30) for ten-month hands-on service placements in the Chapel Hill, NC area. Some Americorps positions are available (with educational grants), and a new component places interns in businesses with a social mission. Placements start in September.

The program is organized around four components of social justice, communal living, leadership training in the Servant-Leadership model, and spiritual development. Interns work a four-day week in community social justice agencies. Fridays are devoted to leadership training, both with other Americorps programs and in Servant Leadership.

Interns come from a wide variety of places and faith backgrounds. They live in community in the JIP house and create a covenant to guide their experience of living together and opportunities for common meals and worship. Interns are expected to volunteer within a faith community of their choosing in the area. They are assigned experienced mentors who serve as a friend and guide for their intern year. Each group of interns designs and completes a service project for the year.

The interns receive a stipend (which enables a simple-living lifestyle) and health insurance. Housing is provided in a home that is convenient to the bus service, which is free in Chapel Hill.
