Interns come to Three Rivers from a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences and locations. *culture is not optional (*cino) welcomes all individuals regardless of age, culture, economic status, ethnic origin, gender, physical challenge and sexual orientation. The basic requirements for service are that the applicant is 18 years or older and has a college degree or applicable work experience.

Unlike some other summer programs, *cino does not require an upfront payment from summer interns.  However, we will walk through a fundraising process together that will ask us each to consider what resources we can gather to help cover the operating expenses of the intentional community and internship program.

*cino welcomes flexible and committed individuals who wish to embrace community, simple living, social justice and spirituality in everyday life. Interns who are independent self-starters, have some experience living independently away from their parents’ home and work well under little supervision are often best suited for *cino internships.
