LIA Summer Internship 2018

May 29 2018 - Aug 6 2018
Nairobi, KE

Boots on the Ground

The LIA Summer Internship is an invitation for young adults ages 19-25 to walk with us boots-on-the-ground for a 10-week program. You will join young adults from countries all over the world to explore the intricacies of sustainable community transformation. As you step into five African communities, you’ll have the opportunity to serve and engage with the locals, targeting the specific needs of that region.

We long to raise up the next generation of Christian leaders by mobilizing you into the mission field and equipping you to serve local communities using our model. Our transformational development model targets four main areas of need within the communities we serve: Economic Empowerment, Community Health, Social Engagement, and Education. Our summer internship will provide you the opportunity to participate with the various programs and projects implemented in the communities. Our hope is to give you the same heart for church-centered community transformation as God has given us!
