Use your vocational skills and strengths to serve with Alongsiders International in Cambodia this summer. Alongsiders exists to equip compassionate young Christians in poor nations to walk alongside those who walk alone: to love, disciple and encourage the most vulnerable children and orphans, in their own communities. 

Alongsiders is seeking interns to assist in following areas: technical computer and design skills, media-video production and editing, social media, creative writing, photography, blogging, comic book design, animation (2D), camping and outdoor education, landscaping, construction, interior decoration. 

Interns live and build community with a local host family. They will meet regularly with a mentor to process their experience and stay in a learning posture. Consider spending your summer gaining meaningful vocational experience (that will look good on a resume) while engaging in life giving work in a cross-cultural setting.

*Cost listed does not include airfare.
