The 10-week Stapleton/Davidson Urban Service Internship engages a small group of students in full-time community engagement among the people who are impoverished in Charlotte over the summer break.
Interns serve in organizations such as the Urban Ministry Center, which provides meals and services for people experiencing homelessness, Dove's Nest, a residential program for women dealing with substance abuse and addiction, and Crisis Assistance Ministry, a resource center for people in financial crisis.
In addition to their hands-on work in Charlotte, interns meet weekly with the college chaplain and local religious leaders to reflect on issues of social justice, scripture, spirituality and the role of the church in responding to the challenges and nurturing the gifts of people living at the margins of our communities.
