CSM Internships

CSM offers a unique opportunity to be a change agent in the heart of Birmingham, Alabama, an epicenter for historical racial and economic equity issues. As a hub for serving vulnerable urban populations in partnership with many local churches, NGOs and municipalities, CSM is offering college or post-graduate student internships in the areas of volunteer group leadership, general admin, community development, graphics/communications/social media, nutrition/dietetics, social work, program development/outreach, horticulture and construction/carpentry. These for-credit positions are un-paid, but as a non-profit ministry, we do allow our interns to raise support or find a sponsor. Please contact Judy Vann, judy@csmission.org.

We are looking for passionate and skilled college students who have just completed their junior or senior year from all concentrations. Each session will include a one-week orientation prior to the first day of ministry. 2016/2017
