Project Mexico is happy to announce its first formal year-long internship program.
The program will be held in Eagle River, Alaska and begins September 15, 2019 and will conclude in August 2020 in Mexico. Interns will go to Mexico in early May to prepare for the summer home building season.
The program will be done in conjunction with OCMC and Saint John Orthodox Cathedral, which will provide a loving, supportive church community for the interns during their stay in Alaska. OCMC missionaries Michael and Jennifer Saur are bringing their immersive missionary experience from Project Mexico to Alaska to help set up and run the program.
Learning service development will include work at the Downtown Hope Center in Anchorage in addition to other social service agencies in Anchorage, Eagle River, and Wasilla. Work with the OCA Diocese of Alaska will be done as well as it becomes available.
There will also be opportunities for Alaskan adventures (i.e. snowboarding, skiing, hiking,etc).
Tuition for the program is $15,000. This covers the entire year and includes travel costs, rent, and a living stipend.
Space is limited, so apply immediately!
