Apprenticeship and Internship Programs

Hands-on development opportunities for emerging leaders who wish to work in a multicultural context with an intentionally embedded, kindred posture.

Internship Programs

Hopeprint's Internship Programs provide hands-on experience in program design, implementation and volunteer management. Each of our internships are a total of 320 hours (Summer, approximately 40 hrs/wk for 8 wks / Schoolyear, approximately 10 hrs/wk for 32 wks). Note: For internships programs requiring a higher number of hours, additional responsibilities are assigned.

Each internship includes different skill-building and opportunities. In the department where interns are leading, they are responsible to plan, coordinate and implement the programs and initiatives under their supervision. This includes cross-cultural relationship building, curriculum implementation, and volunteer management. Interns both participate on and lead teams, giving opportunities to build synergistic efforts in the Hopeprint community and learn from one another.

Residential Apprenticeship Program

Hopeprint's Residential Apprenticeship Program is a year-long immersion program providing hands-on experience in organizational management, program design and leadership, and community development. Apprentices will:

  • Live in one of our Hopeprint Homes located in our founding neighborhood (Northside of Syracuse, NY), investing their everyday lives in our diverse neighborhood towards our shared vision
  • Under the coaching and management of the department director, lead one of our Hopeprint departments including programs, interns and volunteers. Responsibilities will include program design to implementation, including grant writing and reporting, team leadership and other organizational management roles
  • Learn to DNA of Hopeprint in preparation for multiplication in other refugee resettlement cities
  • Opportunities to gain experience in area of study/degree based upon individual credentials
  • Optional: International vision trip to work alongside one of our partners in a refugee asylum nation

Each cohort has limited openings, and one can begin the application process by clicking the link below. The program expense is $6,000/year (or $500/month) which covers all basic living expenses including housing, utilities, internet, laundry and basic food. Apprentices can raise, pay or write an approved grant to cover the program expenses. For those wishing to participate on an international vision trip, an additional $2,000 must be raised/paid. Apprentices will volunteer 20 hours/week, and are encouraged to have a part-time job that does not interfere with their role at Hopeprint.
