The New York Intern Program (NYIP) at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church Manhattanville is a service-learning program for young adults to strengthen their justice commitments and spiritual lives through specific worksites, study and community life.

Interns deepen their understanding of themselves, their vocations and the world through a formation process that includes contemplation, critical thinking and embodied action. The NYIP recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. A plan is on the way to start a new program at Trinity Church, Morrisania in the Bronx and at Grace Church, Millbrook in Duchess County.
