Are you a student with a passion for creativity and meeting the needs of the poor? Have you ever thought about combining the two? Children’s Relief International is a Christ-centered non-profit organization with a mission to take the light of Christ to the poor of our time. Join us for just a semester, or better yet, a one-year commitment as a Writing Intern. You’ll work hard to participate through your words in God’s dignity-restoring, honor-giving work to those in deep poverty through the power of story. You will also have the opportunity to travel overseas with us on a creative trip and use your God-given talents to raise awareness about those living on less than $1 a day. Help us break the chains of poverty and share the hope of Jesus with the world.
