The interns will be responsible for running programs as needed, helping the children develop their storytelling abilities, teaching the values of Christ through an artistic medium, and helping these children discover their unique voices. At the end of the camp, we will be displaying our movie in a theater for the community to watch. 

The 2nd session is split into three 1 week intervals: science, sports, and art. For these three weeks, interns will be responsible for participating in activities as needed, creating and implementing activities for the children, and teaching the values of Christ through discovery, fair play, and beauty.

Our interns will also be responsible for assisting with maintaining contact with our volunteers by assisting with training of volunteers and conducting reflection opportunities with our volunteers following our event. 

Our Supervised Visitation program is conducted through the Medina County court system. Every Monday, Friday and Sunday, families in Medina County are privileged to have a safe place where their children can visit with non-residential parents. This program is specifically catered to separated families where the parents do not get along and have been court ordered not to have harmful interactions in front of their child(ren). Our interns will be responsible for gathering volunteers to staff the event and will be expected to attend at least one of the visitations per week.

 

Participating in Sunday Services

The interns, if musically inclined, will have the opportunity to participate in the band. The interns will have opportunities to make power point presentations for services. The interns will be asked to participate in sundry other Sunday opportunities contingent upon ability and interest.
