Intern: Residential Program for At-risk Youth

Description
About CEM : Christian Encounter Ministries (CEM), established in 1970, is a 24-hour, residential discipleship and counseling ministry for broken and hurting young people (currently accepting males age 16-21 and females age 16-25) who are dealing with many issues such as grief, anger, depression, abandonment, and abuse. These young people, called students, come to CEM voluntarily.

Students stay 18 months on average and receive Christian discipleship, professional counseling, and schooling if necessary (there is a state approved private high school on property)—not to mention other essentials: fellowship, love, and plenty of one-on-one attention. They adhere to a disciplined schedule and learn how to develop a good work ethic. As much as possible, we relate to them as a loving and supportive “extended family.”

About internships: CEM offers internships for committed Christians age 21 and older who love the Lord and are eager to serve others. Ministering to these hurting young people is both demanding and rewarding. Students experience rapid growth, and interns develop additional spiritual maturity and endurance. As servant-leaders, interns model the Christian life as they live and work alongside the students. A staff of committed Christian professionals who have had many years of residential ministry experience provide guidance for the intern team. New interns receive one week of orientation, verbal and written instruction, and helpful direction and advice from senior interns. Internships range from 90 days to 2 years.

Each intern disciples one to three students and teaches group Bible studies on a rotation basis. Interns are hard-working supervisors of the students and perform daily assignments that include practical activities--cooking, cleaning, and various maintenance tasks on our 86-acre campus (affectionately called “the Ranch”). Interns also oversee a dorm room with two or three students. Many teachable moments arise during the daily activities as well as during recreation times (e.g. boating, swimming, fishing, hiking, ball games, “hanging out,” etc.). There are also various opportunities to minister in other ways according to interest and gifting.

Depending on length of stay, interns may accompany the students on a wilderness trip (under staff guidance) in the high country of the Sierras: a two-week late summer backpack trip which includes rock climbing and rappelling, and/or a 4-day winter snow trip. These experiences foster teamwork and character development, and nearly everyone who goes on a trip returns having heard from the Lord in a deep way.

Some of the support for interns: There are usually 6 to 8 interns at a time, and they form a team that supports each other, shares advice and knowledge, and prays for each other. Interns receive professional counseling weekly during their first 90 days, and longer if desired. They learn ways to help students, and the counseling also benefits them on a personal level.

Interns have one 14-hour day off, a 4-hour office time, two 4-hour personal breaks, and a planned 4-hour evening off with the intern team each week. They also have a weekly meeting with the staff, where questions and concerns can be discussed. Interns always have immediate access to staff members and other interns in any crisis. Each intern is assigned a spiritual mentor who meets with him/her weekly.

Credit options: Internships are also available for college students (juniors, seniors, or graduates) especially with interests in counseling, social work, youth ministries, Christian education, or rehabilitation programs. Academic credits vary with each college or university. However, because interning is a “hands-on” experience, time for academic assignments must be limited so interns will not have to abandon their ministry duties.

Compensation: During an internship, CEM provides room and board. All CEM interns are eligible for a graduated grant (from a total of $500 for the first 3 months, up to $600 per month, depending on length of service) to help cover other expenses.

A glimpse of the reward: Interns see the results of their ministry as they build relationships and observe residents healing from deep emotional and spiritual wounds. Even though not every resident makes the progress we hope for, many experience amazing and lasting transformations. Former interns have gone on to serve as missionaries, teachers, counselors, social workers, youth ministers and pastors. They have found their internships invaluable because of the personal spiritual growth and maturity that happened, and also because of the ministry training and experience they received at CEM.

Research/Conservation Science Internship

Description
At Para La Tierra we specialize in training life sciences undergraduates and graduates in the skills they need to enter further education or the job market. Supported by Rolex, the Rufford Foundation and US Fish and Wildlife Service, we are here to help you develop your project design and management skills while you gain experience of a wide variety of field work techniques. You will leave Para La Tierra with an excellent knowledge of how to carry out field projects as well as an understanding of neotropical flora and fauna. You can also join in on our workshops to learn how to write grants and use GPS among other things. At the same time you’ll be immersed in Paraguayan culture in one of Paraguay's most beautiful locations - Reserva Natural Laguna Blanca.

As an intern you will begin your project before you even leave home as you work with our intern supervisor to design your project and complete a literature review. You can choose to begin your own project from scratch depending on your own interests, or you can pick a project from our list of options which you can find on our website. By the time you arrive you’ll be in the final stages of planning and ready to start exploring the reserve. Your fieldwork will start soon after and you might want to enlist some of Para La Tierra’s volunteers to help you. At the end of your fieldwork, you’ll write up your project results and give a short presentation of your study to the other interns and volunteers in the house. After all your hard work you’ll leave with an academic reference and a certificate, plus hundreds of fantastic memories to share with those at home.

Paraguay remains one of the least visited countries in South America yet is also amongst the most friendly, safe and traditional. Paraguay is perfect for an adventurer ready to explore a different world off the beaten track. Para La Tierra is based at Reserva Natural Laguna Blanca, a beautiful location in the east of Paraguay, boasting a clear freshwater lake ready for swimming in, and a sandy beach for you to relax on at the end of the day. Laguna Blanca lies on the frontier of the Paraguayan Cerrado and the Atlantic Forest, two of the most interesting and important habitats in the world. The Cerrado was named a biodiversity hotspot by Conservation International while the Atlantic Forest is one of the five most rapidly disappearing habitat types on Earth. You will be able to explore both of these areas and see some of the biodiversity that Paraguay has to offer such as the maned-wolf, jaguar, capuchin monkey, brock deer, burrowing owl and armadillo. Perhaps the most important species of all is the White-winged Nightjar which is found to breed near Laguna Blanca and in two other locations in the world. Researchers at Para La Tierra are studying this bird's life cycle, habitat and behaviour in order to ensure its survival.

You will be directly involved in helping us to conserve this threatened habitat by aiding us in scientific investigation of the area and making our results public to help raise awareness of the ecological importance of Laguna Blanca. You will also be given the opportunity to see your name in print in a scientific paper, book or in some of our educational material and we are always careful that interns receive full credit for their work.

  • Costs - $790 per month for the 1st 2 months and $750 for each subsequent month. You can also pay on a weekly basis pro rata.
  • There is a 25% discount for South American nationals.
  • This price includes all of your living costs during you stay with us.
  • The meeting point is in Santa Rosa del Aguaray which is the nearest town to the reserve.
  • The cost includes three meals a day with unlimited fruit juice and mineral water, tea and coffee, accommodation, wifi, access to leisure activities such as kayaking and horse riding, administrative costs and a small contribution to Para La Tierra's projects.
  • We have already hosted more than 130 interns who have progressed to careers in biology and conservation.
  • References from past interns are available on request.
