Internships For Chaplains Leaving Active Duty

The Department of Defense Skillbridge Program helps active duty members transition to civilian careers https://skillbridge.osd.mil/. Chaplains can take advantage of an internship with a church or a parachurch ministry during their last 4-6 months on active duty while still receiving full pay and benefits. The packet requires command approval and paperwork varies slightly by service, and each installation has a separate Skillbridge or Career Skills Program office.
