Many young Christian graduates in Nigeria seek opportunities to serve God full-time beyond their church denomination, but shy away because there is usually no assurance there will be provision for their livelihood if such opportunities are taken. On the flip side, YFC Nigeria require passionate ministry minded graduates that can serve in our different ministry fields across our nation.

Virtual Interview will be conducted for the Interns by our Recruitment Team comprising of Board members, Alumni, Partners and Staff. After the interview, the successful candidates will be invited for a 3-weeks induction and training.

The Mission-One Internship begins with an orientation and onboarding program. This is an opportunity for them to get to know about YFC, Mission-One, fellow interns, the staff, YFC Leaders, and be immersed in the YFC culture.

Each week they will spend time in devotions discussing topics, reading Scripture, and praying together. Devos are an excellent opportunity for them to connect, grow, and learn from their peers, other staff and volunteers.

Intern Sessions
At YFC we are invested in our interns’ personal development. Our desire is to provide them with the exclusive opportunity to meet with and learn from the best of the best.

Each week, they will attend an Intern Session where they will hear from our Alumni, Staff, Board members and Partners. They will learn about these people’s personal life journeys, what they do and the role they currently play in God’s kingdom and YFC, and they will have an opportunity to ask questions.

Informational interview
If they come across anyone in YFC’s network who has their dream job, they can ask the National Director through their supervisor to help set up an “informational interview.”


As a missionary organization, YFC believes in Christ injunction in Matthew 10:11 (CEV) – “So when you go to a town or village, find someone able and willing to have you as their guest and stay with them until you leave”. And we saw this demonstrated by the disciples all through the Book of Acts.

Therefore, our plan is to have the Mission-One Interns be hosted by families who will act as parent-Mentors and be accountable for them, all through their stay in the community.

All interns are PAID a monthly stipend. This is provided to assist with living expenses such as food and other personal stuff. Every ministry related expenses will be provided for by the ministry.
