Do you have a heart for young women who are struggling and looking for answers from God’s word in tackling life-dominating sins? Do you have a desire to increase your skills in working with challenging young women from a Biblical point of view?

An internship at Vision of Hope might be just what’s best to help you gain the skills you’ll need to get an awesome job in this ministry area in the future! Interning at Vision of Hope will give you an edge in this career field and will give you valuable experience and possibly even college credit.
