This summer intern program is designed to give young adults from different states and countries opportunities to:
- grow in their spiritual walk with God
- link faith with social justice action
- learn from social justice experts in Nebraska, Kansas and Washington, D.C.
- strengthen leadership skills, and
- connect with Great Plains United Methodists across Nebraska and Kansas
Wholistic discipleship includes direct service (charity), education, and justice work. Interns do all three with a special emphasis on justice work. Shane Claiborne helps with this image: “We give people fish. We teach them to fish. We tear down the walls that have been built up around the fish pond. And we figure out who polluted it.”

Most of the summer's experiences are framed around tearing down the walls (of poverty, environmental degradation, violence, nativism, and food scarcity) that have been built up around the fish pond and figuring out who polluted it.
