Social Worker

We are passionate about seeing the lives of marginalized community members and their families transformed through the ways of Jesus, walking alongside them on their journey. We work towards community transformation by helping them to think through the nature of their issues, ask the right questions and find resources to meet their needs.

In this social worker-like role, you will serve as the Community Development Coordinator, working with the community to identify root causes of some of the felt needs. You will gather and update information on the different resources available for marginalized members of the community. This will be done both through official means and through the streetwise knowledge gained through engaging in conversation with locals. You could then work with the team to develop materials, help lead or facilitate life skills classes and bring ideas for new initiatives. You would also participate relationally in the community through one-on-one mentorship meetings.
