We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
In the first brochure Clarence Jordan and Martin England wrote about the founding of Koinonia Farm, they highlighted the internship as a major component of their plan. It was not an internship in farming though there was plenty of work to do, but rather an internship in community living. We continue today to invite people of all ages to apply for the program. There are three internship terms a year — spring, summer and fall. In one term not too long ago, the youngest intern was 20 and the oldest was 91. Diversity is a part of life in community. During the seasonal internship, some interns apply to stay for an additional year.
Sponsoring an intern provides funding for one intern during a three month or one year stay. Interns do not pay anything for room, meals, field trips, study materials, and other expenses during their stay. They are also given a small allowance, if needed, to cover any extras while on the farm. We are always in need of individuals, churches and other organizations willing to financially sponsor an intern. $2,000 pays for one three month intern and $8,000 pays for one year-long intern. Simply donate that amount below and it will go to sponsor the next internship term at the farm. If you cannot fund an intern for entire term, partial sponsorship is very much appreciated as well.
