Kaio Community & Internships

Kaio Community

For information on internships, click here.

kaio-square-400The word “Kaio,” pronounced kah’-yo, is a Greek word that means “to set on fire, to consume.” It’s used in Luke 24, in which the disciples say of Jesus, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road?”

The Kaio Community offers a unique opportunity for passionate people, motivated by the Gospel, to devote a year to voluntary service with an often-overlooked population in the diverse, exciting city of Chicago. During this year of spiritual, personal, and professional growth, Kaio members are stretched and supported by being part of an intentional community.

Kaio members work full time for Emmaus and are involved in every area of the ministry. They build relationships of trust with men involved in survival prostitution while working on Outreach teams and in the Ministry Center. Each Kaio member is also responsible for an administrative project during their service.

mc-peter-46-400Kaio Community members make a one-year commitment to full-time service, prayer, intentional community, and living simply. Emmaus offers health insurance, room and board, a small weekly stipend, spiritual direction, and at least a few life-changing moments.

Kaio is open to those 21 and over. Members join Emmaus in late August/early September. Applications are accepted year-round, but priority is given to applications submitted before July 15.

This is a unique opportunity for passionate people, motivated by the Gospel, to work with an often-overlooked population in the diverse and exciting city of Chicago. Interns are challenged to grow spiritually, personally, and professionally as they build relationships of trust with men involved in survival prostitution while working on Outreach teams and in the Ministry Center.

Our internships, which are unpaid, offer valuable, practical non-profit experience.
