What type of internship experience does CrossRoads Missions offer?
CrossRoads Missions offers both summer and yearlong internships for high school graduates and college-age students who are 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 are provided room, board, and a stipend to offset expenses. Yearlong interns are assisted 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.
