What type of internship experience does CrossRoads Missions offer?
CrossRoads Missions offers summer and yearlong internships for high school graduates and college-age students seeking to make an impact on the world around them. Our interns join the cause of community transformation as they engage with our fields of service—as well as our work nationwide through Help Build Hope. Summer interns will have room, board, and a stipend to offset expenses. Yearlong interns will have assistance through fundraising support. Interns are engaged in the cause of community transformation and lead our group participants in construction-related activities, community events, community outreach, and relationship building. Our interns become the “face of CrossRoads Missions” to each volunteer group and lead the ministry efforts of the field with the participants.
What makes CrossRoads Missions’ intern program unique?
Immersion – Whether they serve for a summer or a year, our interns dive into the community transformation efforts of CrossRoads Missions in each field of service.
Engagement – Our interns impact the world we live in by becoming part of the communities where they serve through construction, outreach, and community events.
Service – Our intern program is grounded in the core principles of CrossRoads Missions to impact communities one house, one family, and one neighborhood at a time.
Development – Our interns experience profound personal, spiritual, and professional growth, building a life and work skills that will benefit them for years.
