Learn and grow with Four Corners this summer


Serving stateside


This summer you get to learn the interworking of a non-profit organization with our flexible stateside program. We welcome all forms of internships, whether it is one day’s job shadowing, a full-time semester internship or anything in between. We have worked with Auburn University and are an approved internship site.

Four Corners Ministries work for the benefit of people in Northern Uganda and South Sudan. We have a child-sponsorship program in South Sudan and many water-filtration projects in remote villages but the current civil war limits the extent of our involvement in these projects.

In Northern Uganda we facilitate year-round missions trips and have full-time missionaries on the ground. We also have a village called Abaana’s Hope which employs 100 Ugandans in the agriculture and construction sectors, and the jewelry program, Life Beads. Our goal in building this village was to encourage and empower the locals, and to teach instead of do. Ultimately we also learn from them!

Your duties will include, among others, to:


Partnering with Four Corners’ internship program you will have the chance to enjoy a summer of spiritual enrichment and personal growth!

If you are interested in interning with us, please let us know by emailing info@fourcorners.org.

Spread hope in Abaana’s Hope this summer


Interns are a vital part of Four Corners’ strategy for impacting the lives of vulnerable children and families in Uganda. God is using servant leaders just like you to help make an eternal difference in the lives of this community.

Once you submit your application and are approved, you will pay a $200 deposit to secure your spot. You will then receive detailed information on the internship program and be added to a private Facebook group where you can communicate with both current and former interns. Please understand that this internship program is competitive because there is limited space.


Internships begin in January, June and September. The programs typically last no less than 30 days and no more than 6 months.


Please take a moment to download and complete the application packet provided and email the completed packet, along with a current photo, resume and three references to: info@fourcorners.org.


Your application will be reviewed by our Abaana’s Hope staff and someone will be in touch with you soon.


Thanks again for your willingness to serve the Abaana’s Hope Community. If you have any questions please contact us at info@fourcorners.org.

The estimated fee for a 30-day internship is $4,300 and the estimated fee for a 60-day internship is $5,200. Longer internships are available upon approval. Your internship fees are donations to Four Corners to expand the outreach and general ministry of Abaana’s Hope.


They cover the following expenses:


  • Round-trip plane ticket
  • Accommodations - housing shared with roommates at a Four Corner Ministries family’s home
  • Internship/staff meal plan
  • Safe drinking water - bring a reusable bottle
  • Ugandan staff expenses (salaries, food, etc.)
  • Maintenance and utility/fuel expenses
  • Vehicle expenses/fuel/insurance/maintenance
  • Compound security
  • Administration fees

Each intern will be assigned to at least one ministry they are passionate about, but everyone will have been involved with all aspects of Abaana's Hope by the end of the program.


The outreach includes, but is not limited to:


  • Helping with construction in the village;
  • Assisting Abaana’s Hope Medical Clinic and Pharmacy;
  • Agriculture Projects - the planting/harvesting of crops;
  • Abaana’s Hope Women’s Programs - Life Beads and Women’s Refuge Center;
  • Abaana’s Hope Children’s Outreach - coordinating with teams with VBS-based curriculum and also caring for workers’ children;
  • Home visits of children in our sponsorship program;
  • Administration and organization at Abaana’s Hope;
  • Team preparations and planning (for short-term teams).

You will also help with hospitality, which includes serving as well as facilitating short-term teams. We desire that you’ll be encouraged to experience more of the Father’s love in your life through worship, Bible study and encouragement. We have seen many people leave with a passion to discover the unique purpose God has for their lives.

The Abaana’s Hope internship has been created to provide you an opportunity to partner with us and help fulfill the mission we’ve been entrusted with.

You also get the chance to set yourself apart for 30 days to discover who you are and what you were created to do.

  • Vaccinations for traveling to Uganda: if done early these vaccinations are cheaper, but if you wait until the last minute, they will be upwards of $600.
  • Malaria medicine: the price of the medicine varies with different prescriptions. These can range from $5 to $15 a week.
  • Additional snacks and meals while away from Abaana’s Hope: a basic Western type meal and soda will cost approximately 20,000 shillings
    ($8). Your fees will automatically cover at least one meal with the group at a restaurant each week. Any extra outings will be at the individual’s expense. This expense will obviously depend upon how often you choose to eat out and what you eat. There are different grocery stores that have a variety of snacks. Most Western type snacks are more expensive than African distributed foods. Previous interns have spent $20-$30 per month on extra snacks.
  • Souvenirs: this expense will depend completely on how much and what you buy. Former team members have spent between $50 and $300.

Thanks again for your willingness to serve the Abaana’s Hope Community. If you have any questions please contact us at info@fourcorners.org.
