Goals in connecting a CYAK Intern with a church or ministry:
*Developing  young adults into future Alaskan church leaders through immersion into a ministry experience that will help them discern and prepare for their next step in ministry/vocation.
*Developing a mentoring relationship between the intern and the supervising pastor or ministry leader.
*A healthy setting, which provides constructive evaluation of the intern as well as space for spiritual growth.
*A financial arrangement that does not create a hardship for the intern. The local church and the intern agree on housing, stipend, goals, time off and general expectations before the internship begins.
