City Vision provides a range of partner discounts and internship options to provide a spectrum of opportunities to meet various needs of interns and ministries. As the diagram above shows, the options on the left are for program participants that may not have fully developed their capacity and responsibility. For example, there is no cost to partners to give a client or an intern a discount, but our experience has shown that these interns are likely to require about 80-100% of the investment of serving a regular program client, while having 0-20% of the capacity of a staff member. While social entrepreneurship graduate fellowship interns are likely to still require some pastoral investment as you might serve a program client (20%), but they often will have 80% of the capacity of a staff member.
Where on the spectrum you decide to get your interns will depend on how much you want to invest in supporting interns that might be closer to the responsibility levels of your program clients vs. having interns that might cost more but will provide higher capacity support. In the end, you get what you pay for. Our experience is that only organizations that have a mission of "reforming" high-risk interns will likely benefit from having work study or discount only interns. The program is designed this way so that ministries can help interns of all capacities move more toward the capacity of being ready to be a regular nonprofit staff member.
