We believe that work should be a place where you can invest all of who you are to meet the world’s greatest needs. Working alongside our full-time team members, Amigos for Christ Interns use their God-given gifts to serve and make Christ more visible as we transform lives in rural Nicaragua. Amigos Interns have an experience that is more than just an Internship. It’s an experience that bridges what you do and why it matters. From working in community development, to hosting short-term mission groups from the States, to teaching at the local school, there’s a place for you at Amigos.
