Youth Mission Co
Asheville, NC, USA
Youth Mission Co-hosts hundreds of youth from dozens of churches around the country, leading them in Christian service among our neighbors who are experiencing poverty and homelessness. Most of these youth come during our busy summer season and work alongside us to contribute thousands of service hours in Asheville and Raleigh, NC , Memphis, TN, Charleston, SC and Dallas, TX!
Your internship will be an in-depth experience focused on youth ministry, community outreach, teaching youth and their adult advisors about justice through the lens of Scripture, and helping young people explore their faith through the arts.
Interns do a large variety of tasks including:
- organizing groups of youth and their advisors to volunteer at service (mission immersion) sites
- leading these same groups in Bible study, theological reflection, worship, recreation, and art exploration
- participating in volunteer work along with our visiting youth groups
- getting to know 12-15 different ministries and agencies, their staff, and the communities they serve
Your weeks will be busy and long (similar to working at an overnight camp for a summer), but they will also be filled with fun, creativity, times of rest, good friends, and lots of growing.
