Description

This internship is for one year (3 month summer interns will also be considered) and would be based at HFC's orphanage and school in Port au Prince, Haiti. The intern would provide a ministry of presence by setting a Christian example for the 10 young adults and 90 children currently receiving care at the children's home. Primary responsibilities would include: assisting the orphanage's Managing Director and staff; learning Kreyol to better communicate with Haitian staff and children; facilitating communications between Haitian HFC staff and US HFC staff; serving as HFC's representative and helping to manage mission teams while they are in Haiti; participating in daily devotions with HFC's children. Candidates should have strong written and oral communication skills and be able to work independently and in teams. The intern would also seek opportunities for HFC to partner with other non-profits and ministries in Haiti. Prior experience living or volunteering outside of the US is helpful but not necessary.
