CASAS BUILDING INTERNSHIP

As a Casas build intern, you will work directly with families in need, other interns, and available teams of volunteers as you work to give families homes and an opportunity to know the love of Jesus in a very real and tangible way. In our winter/spring internship, you will spend your days with our Field Coordinator staff preparing for our busy spring break season and leading builds when needed. In our summer internship, you will spend the first three weeks of your summer doing on-site training. After this, you will be partnered with other interns to build homes and lead teams through the building process. Most weeks you will be guiding a team through the Casas por Cristo experience – helping them navigate the city they’re in, introducing them to the family they are going to serve, directing them through the building process, and problem-solving on the job site. You will also have the opportunity to share your testimony with your teams and other interns as you facilitate their mission experience. There will be several weeks that you will not be leading a team of volunteers. During those weeks you will be partnering with your fellow interns to build a home for a family or working in the office with our Field Coordinator staff. The experiences you will have will be a tremendous opportunity for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.
