Center for Faith and Vocation

Internships

Trying on work through an internship is a great way to discern your calling. The center offers internships in churches, synagogues, mosques and other religious settings in the greater Indianapolis area and other nonprofit settings. These are opportunities to discover work that speaks to your soul. We encourage you to reflect on the passion and energy that inspire you. Ideal internship candidates are sophomores, juniors and seniors. We recommend that freshmen spend their first year at Butler exploring questions of faith and calling through their courses, attending Big Questions conversations at the CFV, and in discussions with faculty and staff advisors and with new friends on campus. These experiences can provide a strong foundation for landing a great internship through the CFV.
