Description

Developing relationships with the marginalized of our world empowers volunteers to grow in knowledge and faith that inspires them to lead a life of seeking justice. Volunteers are provided housing, health insurance, and a small monthly stipend. They live in intentional community, sharing formation, education, support, and daily life with fellow volunteers. Each volunteer works a full-time schedule, of 35-40 hours per week.

Program Overview: The primary purpose of the Mentored Internship Program is to teach young people the rules and norms of the professional workplace and to provide a supportive space for them to practice.
