Urban Mission Program Seeking Summer Interns
Location: Portland Metro
Closing Date: 4/1/2017
Industry: Education, Event Planning, Nonprofit
Type: Full Time
Our organization, Kaleo Missions, is a partnership-based ministry dedicated to caring for the poor and marginalized people of the urban United States. Our summer intern position is a very demanding, fast paced, leadership position. The applicant will be serving on a ministry team, led by a City Director, and will be leading high school and middle school students into Christian urban ministry. This position is truly an incredible experience for our summer interns and they have the opportunity to learn and grow in many different ways as they serve at family homeless shelters, with summer programs for urban kids, running sports camps, and at addiction recovery programs. Each summer we host mission teams of high school and middle school students. Our interns serve as "urban camp counselors," leading these teams in ministry. You can visit our website at KaleoMissions.org for more information about what we do. View a video of our ministry on our facebook page at www.facebook.com/kaleomissions
