DescriptionThe Eugene Mission – A Wellness Center for the Homeless
Welcome to Eugene’s Mission! We are not a homeless shelter in the traditional sense. While we certainly provide the homeless with food and shelter – and do so with an abundance of God’s love – the Eugene Mission’s ultimate goal is to provide holistic long-term solutions that lead to the wellness of its guests. We are positive but assertive with our guests, asking as much of them as they do of us. We arm them with the skills they need to move forward, while inspiring and motivating them to do so.
Internships at the Eugene Mission span a wide range of programs allowing students to gain valuable experience in everything from marketing and development to social work and counseling. We are excited to serve the needy in our community and invite you to be a part of this good work during the course of your education.
All internships are unpaid and will require 8-12 hours a week in an assigned field of responsibility. Depending on the internship, mandatory hours may be scheduled outside of normal business hours and may include weekend shifts. Quarterly internships are generally offered in alignment with college quarters - summer, fall, winter, & spring – and are evenly divided over the year. Accommodations can be made for programs on a semester system.
GUEST SERVICES INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Like counseling and social services, Guest Service Interns work directly with our guests to meet their daily needs. Guest Services Internships are designed to give hands on experience in the operations of a wellness center and expose you to the realities of serving a homeless population.
ResponsibilitiesA qualified applicant will be a engaging and comfortable with clients from all walks of life.

RequirementsWe offer 24 Staff Support Internships:
In each of our three centers, we offer two quarterly internships per a quarter – one morning intern and one evening intern – which work alongside our Guest Services Supervisors and support staff in meeting the day-to-day needs of our general guest populations. You will assist in providing hospitality services for our guests and encouraging them towards healthier choices. Staff Support Internships are split between the Men’s , Women’s, and Women & Children’s Centers with male interns working with our male guests and female interns working with female guests.
