Internships With ARC
If you are passionate about the well-being of the city and want to learn how to do community research in Boston, our internships are an excellent place to serve and grow. At the intersection of churches, social issues, and research, ARC internships help you develop skills and perspectives that will shape you for the rest of your life.
BETA Internship Program connects talented student learners with urban ministry practitioners. We recruit interns who will contribute to EGC’s research priorities while receiving support that advances their goals for professional and personal development. The BETA program entails a competitive application and interview process, orientation, training, and cohort meetings.
Associate-level BETA Internships are for those with significant ministry or related research experience. BETA Associates are given training and professional development support on par with staff and are expected to be more self-directed in their work.
Research Fellows are highly qualified scholars who do independent research funded through a university or hospital, in partnership with EGC.
