Do you believe that our light can outshine the darkness? Would you love to be part of a community of people transforming their neighborhood through simple yet profound acts of love and kindness? Would you love to live in a mansion full of people who are passionately pursuing their faith and exploring their future?
The heart of the Love the Hill internship is to give interns an opportunity to apply their faith through serving, working, and living in community. This is a two-month practicum designed to push you to your limits in serving others as well as learning to enjoy the moment! This practical approach to neighborhood transformation takes place within the neighborhood you serve day in and day out. This is an amazing chance to grow in your own personal life while being trained and developing leadership skills to take what you've learned to your own neighborhood. The objectives of the Love the Hill Summer Internship are to experience:
- A deepening of your faith and its application to real-life impact
- A lifestyle of prayer and justice
- Community-living as a means for personal wholeness
- Growth in vulnerability, conflict resolution and self-leadership development
- Hands-on service to the marginalized and vulnerable living within Allison Hill
- Life at The Mansion and an immersion into our culture and values
