Program Details

WHO – businesses that emphasize cultural immersion, integrity and servant leadership in Qinghai, Yunnan, and Xinjiang are the target market for 2019. Any city will work, but we prioritize the locations where we can have a cohort of 6+ interns in a region. Please refer companies to

PREVIOUS BUSINESSES – GreenHouse Coffee of Xining (2012 to 2015, 2017), Circa Imports (2014), Starfish Project (2014), Bowman’s Ice Cream (2014) and Erui Software (2014), Torch Coffee Yunnan (2015), Luban Woodworking Factory Xinjiang (2015, 2017), Above the Clouds Art Studio in Yunnan (2016), Snow Mountain Creamery (2017), Mustard Seed Travel (2017), QiaoXi Sports Camps (2017) and Cafe Awake in Yunnan (2017). These interns served in various capacities but with an emphasis on marketing research, sales, canvassing, customer service, written translation, and business plan proposals.

WHY – The goal of the Mintegrity Internship is to provide valuable culture and work experience for gifted college students. Most of our students are based in Henan province, a region that does not have many opportunities for students to experience culture. Our hope is that the interns experience West China and respond to “the Call West for a Career!”

WHAT to Expect – A 12-week Spring or 5-week Summer internship with a day of orientation and a day of debriefing. The students will come to learn and serve. Businesses will employ between 2-4 interns. Businesses will be able to review intern resumes and the businesses are the ones who hire the interns. They will interview up to 3 applicants per position available. Interns will work up to 40 hours a week during the internship.

Spring internships will be from March 5 to May 28th in 2018 (12 Weeks) and Summer internships will be July 9 to August 10 in 2018 Mintegrity will provide a debrief orientation at Sias in late August.
