We live on the east side of San Antonio. It is a neighborhood plagued with poverty, drugs, violence and general brokenness. The internship would mostly focus on our rec center. The Rec is a safe place for kids in the neighborhood to come and hang out and get a hot meals each day. Interns would also be involved in the street ministry side as well.

 

During the summer interns can expect to participate in:

  • Daily operations of The Rec
  • planning activities
  • planning and preparing meals
  • Preparation for summer camp
  • Creating and implementing weekly kids church lessons
  • Creating and facilitating one service project in the neighborhood
  • Work along side us with daily street ministry needs

The kinds of interns we are looking for:

  • Creative
  • Love of kids
  • Compassionate
  • Proactive
  • Able to stay calm in chaos
  • Ability to handle changes either to daily structure or activities
  • Willingness to be open to help with whatever may arise on any given day
  • Having had some experience working with inner city adults and children would be helpful but not required
