Mind to Mind Service Opportunity

In this service opportunity, bilingual university students (undergrad or graduate) would have the option of working at Rivers of Mercy Children's Home and/or Instituto Emmanuel (our on-site elementary school for the students of Rivers of Mercy). Students would have the choice of volunteering for one or more of the following three semesters: Spring Semester (Jan-July), Summer Semester (June-Aug), and/or Fall Semester (Aug-Dec). If you are interested in interning at Rivers of Mercy or Instituto Emmanuel for one or more semesters and receiving college credit, please speak to your college about contacting us in order to establish a certified internship program.

The purpose of this opportunity is for the college student to get hands-on, real-world experience in his/her desired field. Since we are a children's home and school, we seek students with majors in any field of education, physical education, social work, or business administration. Whether you wish to come to step into the classroom as a teacher, teach Bible lessons, tutor, work in the home as a caregiver and plan activities, work with the families of some of the children, work in the office and help with administration, we want to make sure that you leave Rivers of Mercy with practical experience that will benefit you in your field after graduation.

*Spring and fall semester students can work in Rivers of Mercy Children's Home and/or Instituto Emmanuel.

*Summer semester students can only work in Rivers of Mercy Children's Home due to summer vacation. This does not mean education majors cannot teach or tutor during this time.
