Christensen Vocation Intern Overview

20160329_150324Christensen Vocation Interns intentionally explore how the concept We are called to Service in the World applies in a work setting. 

Each spring, Augsburg students serve at faith-based nonprofit organizations for 100 hours during the semester. They also participate in a bi-weekly seminar where they reflect on vocation readings, assessments, and work site experiences together.

The 2017 Christensen Vocation Interns served at:
– Restoration Center at Central Lutheran Church, Downtown Minneapolis
– Trinity Lutheran Church/Safe Place, South Minneapolis
– Redeemer Lutheran Church, North Minneapolis

The Christensen Interns are selected based on strong interest in exploring vocation, call, and career interests in faith-based or service organizations, as well as potential match with the internship site’s needs.

These experiences have led students into unfamiliar territory to serve in a different area, reflect on the impact of the experience (both of their work and of what they learned through the people they encounter), and continue to imagine their own lifelong commitment to service. Past trips include New Orleans, Louisiana; Biloxi, Mississippi, and Laredo, Texas, and Mobile, Alabama.
