Merced, California

This mentorship is in the agricultural heart of California with LifeLine CDC, a ministry affiliated with World Renew.  LifeLine CDC uses a strength-based (asset-based community development) approach to “Empower Impoverished Neighborhoods to Thrive”. We believe that our life story is not our life sentence and that every person has gifts and skills to work together for the common good. As a Community Connector, interns will interact with people from various walks of life and together discover how to better the neighborhoods. Our Community Centers are hubs where people come together around various causes and issues (afterschool programs, youth engagement, emergency food, reentry assistance, community gardens, and much more). Interns will experience and learn from a variety of cultures as they work with a team of dedicated staff and volunteers to see SHALOM happening in the community.
