To involve young people in addressing poverty in their community
The Shared Blessings Internship Program will consist of 4-5 students between the ages of 16-19. The Shared Blessings Internship Program will teach students to serve through hands on training and leadership opportunities. Along with opportunities for service, the program will seek to educate students on the causes, scope, and solutions to poverty. Students will have opportunities to learn leadership skills by helping plan events and leading groups of volunteers. Students will be involved in every aspect of the ministry including direct service, building maintenance, fundraising, and volunteer recruiting. This is a paid internship. Students will receive around $1000 during the course of the program.
