Creative Internship

The Casas por Cristo Creative Internship is an exciting opportunity for students and individuals who are interested in experiencing what it’s like working for a non-profit as a creative. This internship is designed for individuals with a base knowledge of the position they are applying for to continue their education in the specific area of interest (Creative Writing, Design, or Videography).

Unlike the Casas por Cristo Internship program, you will not be required to learn the construction process and other correlating skills in leading teams. However, as a Casas Creative intern, you will have the opportunity to go out on a build alongside our staff so that you can get the full experience of what it’s like working here at Casas por Cristo. We believe it is important that you learn more about our mission during this internship and experience for yourself what it is to work in the nonprofit sector.
