Kairos Summer is based out of our Pelham Road Campus in Greenville, SC. Kairos will officially begin with orientation at our Pelham Campus on Monday, June 3rd. Weekly internship classes are based out of our Pelham Road campus. From class, interns will head out to serve and work with the respective ministries and campuses they have been placed in.

The final day of Kairos is Thursday, August 8th.

Will I get paid for this internship?

Yes, our summer internships combine paid work as well as extensive unpaid educational and training opportunities that are considered a benefit of the internship.

Can I receive college credit for this internship?

If your degree program requires you to take part in an internship, we would be happy to work with you to design an internship that would meet the criteria required by your institution. Details regarding paid vs. unpaid will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

How many hours per week is the internship?

Kairos interns can expect to work full time throughout the duration of their internship. Exact hours and the weekly schedule of each Internship are dependent on the Ministry you are placed with, as will be stated in your contract and job description. Included in this time are classes and training that are considered a benefit to the internship experience.

Is housing included?

Yes, Grace Church host families are provided for those participating in Kairos Summer. Summer interns are strongly encouraged to live with a Host Family for the duration of their internship. We consider this portion of the internship an integral component to the Kairos experience. We encourage all of our interns to spend intentional time with their families, learn from them, and allow them to be a part of your internship experience.

Can I work in addition to the internship?

No, this is a full-time internship that requires all of your time, energy and passion. Kairos Summer interns need to be “all here” for the summer in order to get the desired experience.

Can I take time off, go on my family vacation, etc.?

It is our hope that interns be “all here” and gain the full experience Kairos has to offer. That being said, full weeks are not given off, however, interns are allowed 2-consecutive work days for time off. Please let our Internship staff know as soon as possible any dates you will be requesting.
