Internship FAQS

 

 

What's my role?

Program assistant - This is what we call our program staff who are involved with day-to-day operations. Program assistants do a wide variety of tasks to prepare our facilities, resources, and volunteers for a group or an activity. They often have additional specialized roles.  

Ministry site coordinator - This role focuses on one particular location or type of location where we do ministry. This person has "boots on the ground" building relationships with the people served at that site and anyone in leadership at the site. Their biggest responsibilities center around site-level discipleship, follow-up and identifying specific needs of people at that site that our groups can meet.

Service project coordinator - This role takes a broader look at our community and tries to identify ways we can serve. Projects are established, planned, and then matched with available groups. Having a coordinator helps insure follow-up after the group leaves.

Group facilitator - Facilitators are a key part of our program. Great facilitation is a critical part of our trip formula and is one of the things that makes New Vision trips so impactful. Facilitators assess the dynamics of the group, walk them through activities, and then "debrief" those activities to draw the group's experience out into the open for discussion. Good facilitation is an art form and we are excited to train our program staff in the various ways we use facilitated activities. 

Group host -  Tour guide... plain and simple. This role is there to make sure the group gets where they need to go, have what they need when they get there. You get to stay up late, get up early, and accompany the group on excursions around San Diego. Group hosts are also key to prepare a group when they arrive and to check a group out when they leave. 

Kitchen assistant - These folks help our lead chef as needed. They may be involved with setup-up/tear-down, food prep and service, washing dishes, shopping, and play key roles in special meal activities. 

15-Passenger Van Driver - We need drivers. This is a special role that requires a class B drivers license with a passenger endorsement. There are also opportunities for someone in this role to earn extra money during the summer.
