Our interns have the opportunity to spend one week in Latin America at local Compassion sites. Interns spend time playing with Compassion-sponsored children, serving local church partners, and learning firsthand about the impact that Compassion is having in dozens of countries worldwide. Paired with their work experience at our U.S. headquarters, this energizing trip provides interns with a holistic perspective of Compassion’s ministry.
The mission trip is an optional aspect of the internship, and interns are responsible for raising their own funds. However, we offer various fundraising resources, including an online donation portal, because we believe the trip is foundational to each intern’s experience. Spring and summer interns participate together in the mission trip, providing an opportunity to connect with fellow child advocates. Past intern trips have included the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Nicaragua, Haiti, El Salvador, and Guatemala. Are you ready to embark on this adventure?
Please note: Due to COVID-19, our internship mission trips have been indefinitely canceled. We look forward to resuming these impactful adventures in the future!
