Join the One Seventeen Project team this summer in East Bay, California and in Roatan Honduras to help invest in children, families and the neighborhood. You will be challenged in your relationship with God and your capacity to reflect Jesus Christ in our community. You will receive both discipleship as well as training in cross-cultural ministry.
Our Summer 117 Project, Love Richmond, is a summer day camp for children in Richmond, California. We have partnered with a local church to provide a fun and nurturing program that seeks to love children and share the gospel with them.
As an intern or volunteer, you would be helping us lead a Day Camp (VBS) for children K-5th in our community. This will include running games/sports, organizing crafts, planning skits, & preparing story times. You will also be participating in morning devotions/chapel and cultural discussions.
We offer a summer internship focused on discipleship and cross cultural ministry training. Each intern will engage in discussions and homework on a variety of issues and how we should engage them as a believer (poverty & the gospel; race & the gospel; justice and the gospel; etc.).
June 9 – July 18
The dates include a week of training/debrief. VBS runs 4 consecutive weeks in the summer.
In addition to committing to our VBS camp and training, you can also join us for our overseas cross cultural Orphanage Project in Roatan, Honduras.
