The Fellowship Program
Making a Difference
The Jill’s House Fellowship is an intensive year of service in the Washington, D.C. area for recent college grads who have a strong desire to serve the Lord and an interest in working with children, adolescents, and young adults with intellectual disabilities. Through paid full-time work experience, intentional community, and opportunities to grow in faith, fellows will develop the tools to grow and enrich every area of their lives.
You have a heart for service.
Explore the ways you can share that gift to empower children, adolescents, and young adults with intellectual disabilities through a fellowship at Jill’s House.
The Fellow Role
As a Fellow, you will serve primarily as a Direct Support Professional (DSP). That means you will be fully-trained to work directly with children, adolescents, and young adults with intellectual disabilities, engaging them in a wide variety of fun activities. Jill’s House fellows typically work about 44 hours per week, including two 8 or 12-hour shifts each weekend.

About Jill’s House
At Jill’s House, every room, activity, mural, and staff member serve as a reflection of the love of Christ for children with intellectual disabilities. Our 42,000 square-foot resort in the Washington, D.C. area and our adventure-filled camps across the country were created to give these wonderful children an unforgettable overnight experience that they can’t get anywhere else. And while these kids are having the time of their lives with friends, their parents can rest, knowing their child is in safe and loving hands.
