Architecture Internship

The Architecture Internship is designed for students and graduates of architecture programs to apply their passion and training to serve in missions. This internship provides a unique opportunity for these graduates to work in a non-profit setting while earning their professional license. Our intern architects gain invaluable experience by participating in the complete design process under the guidance of a fully licensed architectural firm.

The internship takes place at 100 Fold Studio, a non-profit architectural firm partnering in ministry with YWAM. Our firm is located on the YWAM campus and serves as the YWAM Montana Campus Architect. This affiliation provides the opportunity for interns to pair their work at 100 Fold Studio with the discipleship training and community available through YWAM.

Our internship is the first step to a full time position with 100 Fold Studio and YWAM. The process consists of an internship; followed by a Discipleship Training School (DTS). Candidates may then apply for a full time position with a 2 year commitment. If you have already completed a DTS, you may forgo the internship and DTS and immediately apply for a 2 year staff commitment.
