Unleash Your Potential: ImpactHope Internships for Change

Welcome to the Engagement Internship Program at ImpactHope! This unique program offers an immersive experience for individuals who are passionate about making a positive impact on communities and desire to gain hands-on experience in a ministry setting. This program is like our Impact Trip Program; however, our Engagement Internship Program allows interns to stay for 1+ months, working closely with our hosts in their day-to-day ministry.

Our Philosophy

At ImpactHope, we believe in the power of engagement and partnership. We are committed to empowering communities and individuals by providing opportunities for personal growth, cultural exchange, and service. Our Engagement Internship Program reflects our philosophy by fostering meaningful connections between interns and our local hosts, creating a collaborative environment that promotes mutual learning and understanding. Please review our Impact Trips page further to explore our philosophy of short to mid-term missions.


  • Duration: The duration of the Engagement Internship Program can vary from 1 to 6 months, depending on the availability and preference of the intern. Depending on the country’s visa requirements, longer internships may be available.
  • Accommodation: We ensure that our interns are provided with safe and comfortable accommodation throughout their stay. Depending on location, interns may stay with local hosts in shared spaces or designated intern housing.
  • Ministry Placement: We keep our active internship posting available on this page. If you wish to apply to a specific position, please review the information and complete the application form below. If you do not see a position that specifically fits your skillset, we would still love to hear from you! Complete the application and briefly specify what you are looking for. Our team will review your application and let you know if we have any upcoming positions you may be interested in!
  • Training and Support: Before starting their internship, interns will receive comprehensive training to equip them for their specific roles and responsibilities. Our team will provide ongoing support and mentorship throughout the internship to ensure a meaningful and impactful experience.

Tat’s Place is much more than just a children’s home. It’s a community that embodies love, hope, and healing in every aspect of its being. It’s been an incredible opportunity to pour into the passion I believe God has placed in my heart. I am grateful for my experiences at Tat’s Place, which have continued to shape my advocacy for vulnerable people both overseas and locally. The mystery of God’s love and mission continues to unfold in my life, and I am eager to see where He leads continues to lead me.
