Site Requirements

A supervised ministry site must be able to:

  • Give a student an opportunity to work with people on serious issues;
  • Provide significant tasks that a student can accomplish and learn from on a part-time and short-term (less than one year) basis;
  • Provide a stable context and consistent direction and oversight of a student’s activities;
  • Enable a student to function in roles appropriate to their status as students in formation;
  • Provide opportunities for the intern to gain new knowledge and experience rather than simply practice what they already know;
  • Facilitate a student’s learning through ongoing conversation and reflection;
  • Submit paperwork for the internship, as required by the Office of Supervised Ministries.
